Spring Is Coming

Happy weekend to my fellow bloggers and newbies reading this. I am really looking forward to Spring in 2019! I live in Galena, Illinois. In the Midwest of the States. Spring is something we really only get bits and bouts of. It sometimes seems we get a few seasons in one day or a week. That is the running joke.

What about where you live in the world where I consider this Springtime now, how is it generally by you? Please share below so we can all learn about one another.

The one thing about Spring that is exciting is the beautiful sunshine flowers growing, yards changing, seeing children out with families, sports activities happening again. It kind of gets rid of the “winter blues”. I am not saying it heals S.A.D (Seasonal Affective Disorder); that is a type of depression that is related to changes in seasons. It generally starts and ends at the same time each year. It begins in the fall and goes through the winter months. I encourage you if you feel you have this or it in lingering more than winter go see your family physician. Mayo Clinic is a great resource, as well as NAMI. Please do not let depression get in your way. I do have references on my page.

But what I am trying to tell you is that we have something to look forward to, something beautiful outside! Today I just got excited that the sun was out and shining high in the sky. It may not be in the high temps but I am grateful for at least this. These are the “little things” that give me joy and I will take it. I hope you find your joy as we are nearing Spring in 2019.
