Putting a Little Spring in Your Step

 

It’s springtime and I’m thinking about sunny days, vacation, gardens, going for walks outside and okay cleaning out the fridge.

But even spring cleaning somehow feels  . . . liberating.

Have I lost you?

I don’t particularly like to clean.  If there was an easy way to turn my house upside down and shake out all the dust and crumbs, I would be doing it.

But what I do like is the clean slate.  Spring brings another chance to start anew.

There’s hope in spring–and not just the season.  The word alone brings to mind words like:

Rise.

Leap.

Move.

Skip.

Bounce.

Hop.

Vault.

Grow.

Release.

 Spring can make you feel like your life is wide open.

 

It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want —oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!
~Mark Twain

What does Spring mean to you?  What are you looking forward to?
