Chapter 4, Page 13, Book 11


The things that remind us of spring are wonderful things. Spring in the air just gives you a good feeling deep inside. I often feel like I have a spring in in my step this time of year too. I've noticed that moods are easier, life is more amusing, the future less threatening.

Its amazing what some fresh spring air will do to clear the mind and dust off the cobwebs of winter. Some people are a breath of fresh air to those they meet and come in contact with and are like a ray of sunshine for sure.

Spring is something that comes to you with a sense of renewal and hope. We're always going to have a few or sometimes a lot of rain clouds in our lives. But I know that it takes the rain to make those lovely flowers grow.

For us it is the Tween of seasons. Halfway out of winter and half way into summer. Some days we are cold and chilly and other days the sunshine is warm and bright. My winter layers have changed just a bit. I've put away the heavy wool sweaters and exchanged the turtleneck shirts for short sleeved teeshirts. But I always have a lightweight sweater on hand too.

All and all there is that air of spring about us and I'm hoping your Wednesday is a WONDERFUL one too.

'On Ya'-ma



I love how you described spring as being the TWEEN of seasons. It definitely does "dust off the cobwebs of winter." I'm still have my snowman shirt in my closet just in case.

It is always good to have the windows opened on the spring days that are warm and to enjoy the breeze coming through! So refreshing I think!! But you are right, I always say you can get a few days of winter and a few days of summer in these tween seasons indeed!!

have a good day!
