Today is the first day of Spring, the 20th of March, and I would like to share twenty reasons that Spring is my favorite season of the year.
1 My daughter Cathie’s birthday – April 10th.
2 My daughter Barbie’s birthday – April 2nd.
3 My best friend Barb’s birthday – March 23rd
4 Temperatures are warmer
5 Can lower the thermostat
6 My lilac bush has green leaves on it
10 Forsythia bushes
11 Blossoming fruit trees
12 Dogwood tree blooms
13 Baseball begins (I’m a diehard Chicago Cub fan)
14 Can open windows for fresh air
15 Watch seeds spring forth out of the ground
16 A time of new birth and new life
17 A sense of expectancy
18 A sense of hope
19Observe Good Friday and remember that Jesus took all our sins upon Himself and paid the debt we owe
20 Celebrate Easter and the resurrection of Jesus
Hope everyone enjoys this great season and has a blessed Easter.
