i don't think it has been any secret
that i have been waiting patiently-not-so-patiently
for spring to arrive...
for blossoms to bloom
and snow to melt,
grass to turn green and
the heat of the sun against my skin.
the last week or so has been particularly hard...
snow...freezing cold wind and rain...dark, dreary days.
i am normally a pretty happy easy going person
but i seriously felt like the slightest error of a moment
might be all it would take
to make me snap....
i felt like i could crawl out of my skin,
like i was constantly just perched on the verge of tears...
like i was losing my mind.
and then, this weekend...the sun shone
and the rain stopped
and amidst the mud and the melting snow
i feel like me again.
