30 days of thankfulness, Day 16: Thankful for Spring and Summer


On day 16, I am thankful for Spring and Summer. Anyone who knows me very well at all, knows that I don't like snow and cold weather, but thrive on warm weather.

  In Spring, it is so nice to see color springing up everywhere. What was grey, dull, and ugly becomes a multitude of color. A grey sky becomes blue. Brown grass becomes green. Barren, black trees become covered with green. Birds sing, new life is everywhere. We have more hours of daylight.

 Then summer arrives. The days are longer and more color filled. Sure, it can get too hot some days, but mornings and evenings are cooler. There is so much you can do outside that you can't do during the winter months.

  It is medically proven that people are more depressed in the winter... so is it any wonder the Spring and Summer months can bring about such a change in outlook and attitude?

 I really do hate winter, snow, and cold, but am very thankful we have months of Spring and Summer filled with warmth, sunshine, and happier days.
