March 16 15
The birds are singing outside my bedroom window and I cannot sleep. It’s a good thing! I get out of bed head to the kitchen and make some coffee. I sit down in my living room with my mug looking out at my backyard and just listen. Music to my ears 🙂 Spring is in 4 days and life is anew once again.
Spring is right around the corner here in the midwest! And…… Springs here are simply gorgeous. Botanical Garden get ready I want to visit soon !! Growing up in the northeast I think we always got cheated when it came to Spring because it always came so late and then left so quickly. There is definitely something about the Spring time that brings out excitement in me. I don’t know if it is the beauty of trees budding or the warm weather that makes it special for me. Like I said….I can’t sleep. Well that could also be my hormones…..but let’s just say its the Spring, the early morning sunshine time that’s making me excited….. I like that better. hahah
I was outside yesterday all day in 73 degree weather. I even cleaned my two bird feeders….never did that before. The birds will be happy today when I fill them. I do want to keep my birds happy after all so they will continue to sing for me …..and make me happy!
I hope for my family in MA that they too shall start to feel the warmth and excitement that I feel here in the midwest. Spring is arriving! Yeah!!
SO….the positive thought for today is: Replace fear with curiosity.
Um….I’m going to have to really ponder on that one today. Just last night I was finishing up a scene from my childhood that I was writing for my book. Yikes …..it was all about fear…..and how my dad used to wake us up all the time in the middle of the night. Sometime I think I was born afraid. Well……I will save that for the book.
