Last week on the first day of spring, it snowed six inches here in New York. I got out and shoveled my driveway for the umpteenth time this season. Will this winter never end? The Amish community lives with the rhythms of the seasons. They know times of planting and harvest. They are in tune with the cycles of nature.
Me? I’m complaining there will never be spring again. And there were six more inches of how bad this winter was all over my city. But the sun came out the next day. Soon there were no signs of the snow that had me slipping on sidewalks the day before. A freak storm and a reminder to me: Spring. Will. Come. I will not be stuck in a deep freeze forever. As you emerge from this winter season I hope you too find joy in the sunshine. Just as winter can’t last forever, neither can spring. So take a moment to really enjoy it today.
