It’s Easter time and most of us picture bright sunny spring days filled with birds chirping and flowers blooming. Not this year in the North East. We have had gloomy skies for the past several days filled with March winds and flakes of snow whipping by.
But all is not lost because we can get through these last days of winter weather in the spring by taking in the little things around us, like daffodils in the grocery stores to bring home and pretend I have just picked from my garden, and a few brave bulbs beginning to emerge from the cold ground.
A Christmas cactus that thinks it’s an Easter cactus and old Easter cards that I found in a box.
These are what hold me over until the real thing comes along.
That and the knowledge that in a few days we will be heading to Florida to sit ocean side in muuuch warmer weather than we have here.
So I’ll keep on smiling because we have made it this far and the worst is behind us now
…it just has to be.
Happy Easter, I hope it’s spring like where you live!
