I am grieving Spring right now.
I am missing the beloved sun as it’s face and warmth continues to hide behind cold, dreary clouds.
Spring cannot get here soon enough. The cold and being cooped up in the house is consuming my mind. I’m starting to easily get annoyed. I’m not sleeping. Over the weekend, I have lost many hours of sleep. This is usually when I sleep my best. Today is Monday, and I have been awake tossing and turning since 1 am.
With my restless mind, I’ve decided I needed to start thinking of all the Spring projects I want to accomplish. A frog pond is going to be my focus this year. I told my husband I think it will add a great feature to the yard and keep the insects down. I’ve been talking about it for awhile, but this is the year I’m going to make it happen.
It’s been two years in the making, our backyard, and we’ve been working hard to make it our secluded sanctuary. It’s a slow process, but it’s coming together quite well.
I cannot wait until the flowers start blooming. I cannot wait until I can get outside and pull weeds without my fingers getting freezer burnt.
I cannot wait.
Here is a picture of a Rhododendron we purchased last year. My favorite flower. Just a reminder that even though it’s gloomy now, I have this beauty to look forward to. Despite feeling it’s an eternity away.
For now, I will have to just Faith it until I make it.
