I need spring. I need to know the earth is going to come alive again. I need to smell the soil thawing, see buds emerging from the dirt, and feel sunshine on my face. If you are in a place where this is possible, take a moment today to look at the blooming around you. Appreciate the gentle scent of a flower. Rest in the grass and take a breath. For those of us buried under 18 inches of snow, look at this flower and imagine walking through a blooming garden. Feel the sun. Hear the birds. Put yourself in the place where this is happening. Breathe. It will be here soon.
