The Life of Bon: Spring

Saturday, March 30, 2013


Spring is breathing life into me.  It's like my heart and soul are finally starting to thaw after a long, harsh winter.  And, boy!  Wasn't winter long?  And wasn't it harsh?  So harsh!  I never am a lover of winter, but winter of 2013 will be the winter that goes down in the books as the longest, coldest winter.

Just when I thought I couldn't take any more of the bitter winter, the sun peeked out.  The snow melted, and I was reminded that there is beauty in the world.  Someday I would like to be a good enough writer to explain how much I love spring, but for now this will have to suffice.  I believe spring is a gift from God.  A reward for having endured winter.  The fact that every single year winter is followed by spring is a testimony to me of the goodness of God.  A testament that no matter what the darkness and coldness in our lives, it's always followed by light and warmth and sunshine.  Sometimes our periods of winter seem especially long.  But spring always comes.

I hope you are enjoying the beginnings of spring weather.  Or if you are one of those gross people that live in a state of perpetual sunshine (Florida!) (Arizona!) (California!) I hope that you can reappreciate the sunshine this weekend.  And when you feel that warmth on your arms that you haven't felt so many months I hope you remember this- the cold can't last forever.

For your weekend reading:
+In honor of April Fool's coming up, there's this.  Let's just say I already have a few plans.
+I'm on spring break right now.  This is what I did last spring break.
+I wrote this post on what I love most about my job exactly a year ago.  Reading it today made me cry.
+If there is a post that will get me fired, it is definitely definitely this one.
+I have been absolutely overwhelmed by your kind and honest comments on this post. I have some of the sweetest readers in the world.  I hope you can feel my sincere love traveling across the vast internet waves.
