1st day of spring

Monday, April 19, 2010

Today was the first day of spring... at least to me.

You might be thinking to yourself "why was today the first day of spring for her? Come on Kati, the first day of spring was way back in March."

Let me then explain myself.

Spring defined to me is...

The sun shinning.

The need to roll down your car windows.

Homework become 2nd to everything else.

Reuniting with old friends.

Red tulips lining a yard.

Tandem bike rides with a friend.

Your mind is care free and HAPPINESS is all you feel!

'For behold, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone.
'The flowers have already appeared in the land;
The time has arrived for pruning the vines,
And the voice of the turtledove has been heard in our land.
'The fig tree has ripened its figs,
And the vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance.
Arise, my darling, my beautiful one,
And come along!' "
Song 2:11-13

This is how I know it is finally spring.

Doesn't spring sound magical?!

My eyes fight the urge to close.

My feet drag, creating friction with the floor.

My homework seems almost impossible.

My mouth only seems to spout out negative words that make negative sentences.

My mind races with different thoughts, confusion, emotions, and to-do-lists.

My heart yearns for adventure, purpose, love, change of scenery, airplanes that take me far away, India.

And with all of this stuff, you know what comes to my mind?... A song, that speaks to me.

"So I crawl underneath my blanket
Where I can hide away
I know I can't take it
‘Cause I see now
It's just one of those days."

So I keep hoping, it's just one of those days.
