Oh Spring....You Are Almost Here!

What a wonderful surprise!  As I opened my door this morning, I was greeted with a beautiful gift from God......


My daffodils are blooming...

Oh Spring......you are almost here! 

I am so full of excitement as I wait with great anticipation for the full arrival of Spring.  This is the season that brings such Hope and Joy!  There is new life all around us and I can see God's hand at work in each new day....

It is also a season for dancing in the rain!  I have so many pleasant memories of playing in the rain when I was a child.  (The kind of thing that few kids do these days)  There were so many times that the Spring showers would fill up the ditches in front of our home and all of us kids would play for what seemed to be hours.
Running and splashing in the water was a thrill of a life time even if we were covered in mud from head to toe!



As I stepped outside early this morning, I could smell the freshness of the morning air and I could hear the sweet melodies of the birds as they sang their morning songs.

I also took some time to walk around the yard, and to my amazement, there were tiny little buds springing forth on many of my bushes and trees.


Yesterday was a beautiful day as well.....Mylee and I enjoyed a fabulous afternoon playing in the sun.  We also took a ride with the top down on my little red bug!    

Oh Yes....Spring, you are almost here and I welcome you with gladness in
my heart...

 

Shug Sez.....

Today is a great day and I will Praise God for His Sweet Goodness.

Take a walk in the park with someone you love...You'll be glad you did!

Hooray! I'm so happy for you to almost have Spring! We are still ankle deep in snow and cold, but sooner or later... Spring will get here!
Blessings!

Wow Shug, You do have lots of signs of spring down there now... I'm excited for you.. We don't have too much yet --but if this warmer weather stays with us, we soon will have some buds and blooms also...

I love Daffodils.... GORGEOUS..
Hugs,
Betsy

Lucky girl! To have daffodils blooming already. We're eagerly awaiting spring here, but there's a rumor going around that we will have another big snow in March...according to the Farmer's Almanac or something. I hope it's just a rumor! Yesterday, I counted 32 robins! That, to me, is a sure sign of spring. I think it was just a "drive by" since they didn't stay long, but some of them will be back! Have a great day, Cheryl

I LOVE the pink umbrella amid the yellow flowers, It made me feel so good and gave me a huge smile!! What an amazing picture. I'm also amazed at the flowers that are blooming now, it is snowing here. I, too, can't wait for spring!! But now I have a little bit of in here on your blog. I was MUCH too proper as a child to dance in the rain, I don't think I had a very happy childhood. But I loved running under the hose and was always begging to get it out. Although back then my folks were really freaked out about polio. Remember when it was thought that pools or getting wet in the summer could cause it?

Hi Shug!

Your beautiful photos gave me hope today! Playing in the rain sounds like a wonderful thing right now - instead of playing in the snow!! God is good, spring will come... :0)

Hugs,
