Step into Spring!

What a beautiful day today has been. The sun has been emitting its long warm rays and giving us a taste of warmth and sense of the seasons ahead. Signs of Spring are beginning to emerge from the recently snow covered soil. How much happier does it make us feel when we can spend time outside enjoying the free gifts of nature.
Our home was filled with people today on a rolling basis, some in, some out all day long. It's lovely having so much life, laughter and happiness surrounding us. Life is short and precious, we have to make the most of every living moment, see the positive in all that is set before us.
We ventured out this afternoon and for the first time in a long while the children didn't complain. Instead they ran and played in the trees, were drawn to the hedgerows and froliced with friends.
Woohoo for the warmer weather and longer daylight hours!
