The Joy of Springtime
"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant."
Spring tends to take us by surprise each year, doesn't it? In the dead of winter, it is hard to fathom that it will ever be spring or summer again. But before we know it, we hear those first chirps. What a glorious feeling! It is a lot like our lives, isn;t it? We would not appreciate the glorious vacations as much if we didn't have the typical, ho-hum workdays. And we would not appreciate the weddings and other joyous events so much if we did not also have the funerals and other sorrowful times. What amazing lives we lead.
TODAY I WILL NOT ONLY APPRECIATE THIS FINE SPRING DAY BY TAKING A WALK IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD- I WILL ALSO BE MINDFUL THAT WITHOUT STRUGGLES IN LIFE, I WOULD NOT APPRECIATE THE JOYOUS OCCASIONS SO MUCH
