Spring has been a long time coming here, in northern New England. Weeks of cold and rain, and not a leaf bud in sight. But since May arrived, it’s gotten mildly warmer, enough for the flowers to bloom, though not as full as they have been previous years. I heard on the news that this spring is 10 degrees cooler than normal for this time of year (10 degrees! ugh). All combined, it dampened my spirits; spring is one of my favorite seasons.
But just this Saturday the temperature soared, and as if on cue leaf buds everywhere sprouted, painting the world in vibrant greens, and at last it truly felt like spring (or dare I say summer?)! I brought my laptop out to the porch and soaked in the sun’s rays while revising my current WIP project, and it was warm and relaxing. One positive thing during a week that otherwise wasn’t so good.
What I like about this weeklysmile meme is that it forces me to think about the good things that happen each week. It’s too easy to focus and dwell on the negative. I would much rather think of the good things, and remember what made me smile.
