Spring is beginning to reveal herself here in the USA.
It seems to me that she was late arriving this year and that her sister Winter, stayed way too long.
Spring reminds us that appearances are deceiving. When in the dead of winter, it seems that there is no life left in the perennials, that they have given in and given up, Spring breathes life back into the plants.
The perennials awaken, stretch their arms skyward, reaching for the nourishing warmth of the sunshine.
I can relate to the plants. I am ready to experience the life sustaining and life enhancing warmth of the sunshine and fresh air. While I respect the need to hibernate, to rest and renew, I love feeling alive and energized.
Somehow, I need to discipline myself to be aware of and appreciate each day and not allow the days to pass in a blur.
I need not take these days for granted because I know that my days are numbered...and though it is not my business to know that number...it is my business to live each day to the fullest, in blissful awareness and appreciation for the gift I have been given.
Affirmation for the Week:
I appreciate the joy in my life and live each day to the fullest. Have a joyful week!
