It’s that time of year when I have to take full advantage of every sunny day.
One of the perks of being a stay-at-home mom is that I no longer have to spend these days wistfully looking out of windows as Spring blossoms on the world; I just tell the kids to put their shoes on, and out we go. Sunshine is an essential nutrient for everyone, and we need to catch up after months of clouds. It’s a matter of health.
Of course, the streams and puddles of melting snow means that there’s mud everywhere, and the children are having a hay day.
I love opening the windows and cleaning out the stuffiness of winter.
I love listening to chirping birds, watching the tulips start to pop up from the ground, and the way the world returns to green.
Ah, Spring. So marvelous.
And endlessly beckoning me with a voice too strong to resist.
