Inspirational Monday: She is finally here...

All day I've been noticing how absolutely beautiful the sky is.

I drove to the city and looked up. Instead of noticing all the exquisite architecture surrounding me, all I could look at was the sky.

I drove home and waited at the bus stop for my daughter. All I could do while waiting was look up at the sky.

The bulbs are bursting out the ground. The buds are appearing on the branches and shrubs. The birds are soaring a little bit slower as if not in a rush to get out of the cold. And my eyes keep beckoning me to look up at the sky.

The sky is a little bluer these days. The clouds, a little fluffier. They dance so gracefully across the sky.

Children are outside playing. Their laughter intoxicating. People are a bit more friendly, I realise as I look up at the sky.

There's something in the air and it's taking over.

Mother Nature is changing into Spring.


















*Inspirational Monday is the brainchild of vchelle over at Operation You. Everyone is invited to stop by and post your links of inspiration.

i was already unpacking my groceries for the cashier when i realized i had forgotten something. the elderly gentleman behind me in the line up said "go go, get whatever you need". when i got back he had unpacked the rest of my grocery cart. when i thanked him, he smiled and said "it's the sun. don't you feel happy today because of the sun?" he made my day in more ways than one.

Yes, she is finally here! Although it is 39 degrees this AM here in the South, I feel, smell, see her presence and it makes me happy! Happy Inspirational Monday!

I'm all for spring, but this rain has got to go... to quote my friend's facebook status

"april showers bring may flowers... stupid flowers"

Oh, I just *love* when Mother Nature puts on her spring clothes! Those shades of blue and spring green just look so lovely on her!
