Can you see it? The sun is shining, the snow is melting, the water is running, the birds are chirping and the green grass is peaking through. Okay, maybe the wind is howling, the snow is falling, the roads are slippery and brown dirt that had melted through last week is showing. It does not quite feel like it but today is the first day of spring. The sun is not actually supposed to shine until the end of next week. And it is not supposed to be above freezing. However, spring is truly not far away. I know winters can be long and hard, but the coming of spring always makes me feel glad that we live in a country that has four seasons. Spring is a time of renewal, growth and birth. And I can’t wait until it actually gets here.
