Cheers!

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

Warm weather is here and I am loving it! In the past I have never really minded winter all that much, haven’t paid much mind to the changing of seasons except to dislike the transition from spring to summer because I’m not much of a fan of the heat. This spring is totally different. I didn’t realize how drained I was feeling from being cooped up inside all winter until it was nice enough to get out. I know it’s possible to get out for fresh air in the winter, but with three kids age 4 and under, it’s not very probable.

A month ago I started some tomato and pepper seeds, and it has done wonders for my state of mind to watch these seeds take root, poke their tiny heads out of the soil, and lean toward the life sustaining sun that shines upon them. Look at my tomato plants just last week!

So cheers! Cheers to warm weather! Cheers to delicious fruit at the store that doesn’t cost you your firstborn child! Cheers to sitting on the front step eating that fruit! Cheers to your kids getting out on their bikes and trikes! Cheers to irises and lilies poking their heads out of the ground, and more soon to follow! Cheers to yardwork, finishing our deck, getting patio furniture, and sitting on that deck all summer long (under an umbrella…like I said, I don’t love the heat). Cheers to strawberry iced tea with a splash of white wine. Mmmm….thank you Jesus. Cheers to the simple things.
