It’s officially spring and I can’t help but to hope for soft blue skies and flowers waiting to welcome me to the day. Instead this morning I opened my eyes to a sky full of dark clouds. Dark clouds that occasionally spit out rain and sleet. It was a day that truly feels like spring. One of those that no amount of cute rhymes about “April showers” can make pleasant when you are out in the teeth of the wind.
Spring is not my favorite season.
But in the wind I was.
And for the first time this year that wind smelled like spring.
And by the time I was done dodging rain showers our new arrivals were all settled in.
And with a scrap of fluff in my hand I was reminded that Spring does have it’s merits after all.
