Awaiting Spring

Winter will soon be over. [I hope very soon because I can’t wait for spring.]

Well, living in Maine for almost 3 years now and being able to survive all 4 seasons for that span of time, I somehow love the feeling of looking forward to the changing seasons.

Like a little girl waiting in great anticipation for spring to see again the wild flowers in bloom… or the cocoon to undergo metamorphosis and turn into beautiful butterfly… or the return of the birds from hibernation and lunching on my feeders… I too wait for spring with so much hope in my heart.

I long to once again walk barefooted and let the grass tickle my toes. I long to see again the trees – budding… and new life - sprouting. I long to feel again the warm breeze on my cheeks and open my windows to welcome the crisp scent of pine trees to spice up my living room.

Changing Seasons - transforming life in multiple ways… giving hope in multiple levels… and sustaining faith in countless possibilities.

  1. I haven't been to Maine in a long time, with the exception of a trip to York, ME to see the lighthouse a couple Thanksgivings ago. I used to visit Maine every year. My ex husband's family had a cottage on Capitol Island near Boothbay Harbor. What I remember of flowers in Maine were fields of purple flowers. I think they are called lupins.

  10. @C... I love springtime just because I wanted to get rid of winter.hahaha Fall is my favorite because of the splash of color and mild temp. But winter used to be my favorite season of all had I not been in a car accident winter of 2008. And yes I love those ice cream shops too.
