The sounds of birds singing, especially first thing in the morning.
The greening of the grass.
The budding of the trees.
The emergence of an amazing variety of flowers, trees, bushes.
The return of migrating animal friends.
The extended hours of daylight.
The warming of temperatures (with brief cold spells to give us perspective).
The return of my urge to travel.
The sights and sounds of neighbors emerging from their houses.
The shedding of heavy clothing.
And, ultimately, the overall promise of rebirth ~ that life will go on ~ and, as a part of Nature, I can embrace the cyclical nature of things and trust that I, too, am being renewed.

Today, I am grateful for SPRING! :)
