Ahhhhh, sweet, sweet Spring how I love thee.
I’m not sure just what it is about Spring, but I find that I seem to have a hop in my step and a smile on my lips even on the craziest of days.
Today is a typical Monday after a verrrrrry hectic, very whirlwind weekend and instead of curling up in a ball in the corner somewhere, I have been enamored with Spring and all her GLORY! My 9 year old daughter, Sweet Cheeks, absolutely LOVES the author, Douglas Florian and especially his four books that are collections of his poems and paintings that capture each season. This particular poem seems to be very poignant on a day like today.
What I Love About Spring
Trees are growing
Streams are flowing
Cool spring showers
Days are longer
Sun is stronger
Every morning songbirds sing-
I love nearly everything!
Do yourself a favor during your busy hectic day,
Set some time aside for you to take a rest or play,
The work you have will still be there, waiting patiently…
Take this advice from my sweet little pooch, my darling dog, Oakley!
Stop and smell the flowers…
