As the weather gets warmer, we often feel a sense or restlessness, or cabin fever, after having been inside for the long cold winter. Indeed this is how I feel. I am chomping at the bit to begin life anew and I see new leaves and growth on the trees outside my windows. even as the weather struggles with warm one day and cold the next, I just want to be where life is good and the sun is shining.
IT seems that this winter has been a long one indeed. And I have made it through. So…now what? Now it is Spring. And there are trips to make, people to see, sitting outside on the patio, laughing and sipping. There are new exercise plans to start, laughter, friends, lovers and life waiting for me.
Often when we have gone w=through a hard time, or a time of transformation, we get anxious to put it all in play. To do the Spring cleaning – out with the old and in with the…wonderful.
I am am so ready. And yet there are still things to take care of and plan. There are miles to go before I sleep. But the promise of Spring floats in the air and in my dreams, along with the smell of honeysuckle and roses.
And when we are in this space, sometimes we just have to pray. And believe. And have faith. That everything will unfold as it should, in perfect timing. All we need to do is be present in the moments ahead, because memories are made while we are waiting. Memories that are restless and waiting to be made.
