“Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!” Sitting Bull
Everything comes alive in Spring! Flowers bloom, birds sing, and even we feel the change. Spring brings along hope after a dark and dreary winter. This one has certainly been merciless for those in the cold regions.
Spring Flowers: One of the highlights of Spring is enjoying the new flowers that peek their heads up as soon as they feel it’s safe. They may not hold a candle to May flowers, but the first buds bring along a feeling of freshness for us all.
Spring Cleaning: One important part of the season is to rid ourselves of things we don’t want or need. Most people go out and buy plants- whether or not they have a green thumb. Spring just makes us want to throw away junk and get ready to attain some more!
Easter: We celebrate the resurrection of Jesus in many special ways. It is the day to prepare special music for church. We usually wear a new dress on Easter Sunday. I remember fondly my mother sewing a new Easter dress for all five of us girls. As children, we loved waking up to an Easter basket and going to Nanny’s house for an Easter egg hunt!
Here in Thailand, though warm throughout the year, we still look forward to the change of seasons–rainy, hot, and extra hot.
