It’s mid-April here in Muskoka, and I am in my front yard shoveling snow. That’s right.
It is melting, but I can’t wait to get to my little garden and get my hands into the earth.
If I don’t remove the hard snow, it might be May before I can do that!
When I hear people complain about the weather—and boy do people ever love to do that--
I think, why bother? I smile to myself and read what my favorite t-shirt says,
“NO REALLY that’s very interesting. PLEASE…GO ON.” Haha. The weather is going to be whatever the weather is going to be. I refuse to complain about it. We can’t change it,
but we can change our attitude about it (or move south!) I love this quote;
“There is no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing"- Ranulf Fiennes.
When Spring arrives and people talk about how brown, sandy and gloomy it is, I must disagree. I see geese arriving, squirrels and chipmunks running about, birds singing,
water flowing, snow melting and warmth in the sun. The buds are slowly starting to
wake up and I am excited with anticipation. New beginnings.
Every season has its “wonderfulness.” Enjoy it. And if you still have snow in April,
put on your t-shirt, your boots, get your shovel out and remember…
Little miracles are everywhere, if you choose to find them.
