I'm ready! I'm tired of rain and sleet and wind and cold and clouds. I want flowers and branches tipped with pale green and warm sun and a gentle breeze. I don't want to buy any more kleenex or chicken noodle soup or Nyquil. I want to buy lemonade and asparagus and strawberries.

I want Spring. Officially it starts tonight although I find it odd how human beings want to pinpoint the change of seasons not just to the day but to the exact hour and minute. It's coming. I know it is. The lambs running in the pastures tell me so. The patches of blue sky tell me so. I'm ready. Life is good.
