Here in Southern Ontario the temperatures have begun to rise…a bit. Last year at this time we were outside in shorts and T-shirts with the beginnings of green grass showing.
Right now there is still a foot of snow on our front lawn, but hey just two weeks ago I snapped this photo of my daughter in a parking lot that had just been plowed so it’s all relative right?
Doesn’t take much does it?
Our family spends most of our summers in cottage country at a resort where we have a little trailer. It’s a wee slice of heaven for me, a place where I am able to rest and reflect while my children participate in daily programming founded in our Christian Faith.
This time of year has my darling offspring making plans for their summer, excitedly they natter away about what they’ll be doing at MBC this year. Canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, hiking oh so many things for them to look forward to!
My husband is also getting into the spirit of summer planning, dreaming of the boat he wishes we could afford. Up until now he hasn’t had a boat licence and has had to rely upon his muscles rowing around the lake.
I have many memories of seeing them glide off into the distance for their adventures as I sit on the shore with a good book. One day perhaps we’ll have that powerful boat he dreams of.
Because Spring is in the air and it’s like things begin again…do you feel this way during Spring as the seasons change?
The sense of exictement, renewed energy seems to come upon me without any effort.
With Spring I feel like I’m experiencing a sense of hope all over again and can somehow find the happiness in each day a little easier than I can during Winter.
