Feel the sun on your face

Here comes the sun

You can feel the grass grow, the buds open as you watch them, feel the sun on your face and love in your heart, for your family, your friends, for the whole world.
This Beatles song says all there is to say about the beginning of Spring doesn't it?
So get pruning, cut off the dead leaves and branches, plant something new for Spring which will blossom and flourish, wash and pack away your winter woolies and think coats, lighten up in spirit as well, laugh at yourself, smile at yourself in the mirror, not in a vain way, a happy way, you're alright, trust your instinct but don't take it too seriously, look out for seasonal produce in the shops and ta the market, asparagus, courgettes, peas and beans, the first strawberries, make peace with yourself and your problems, read inspirational quotes and breathe in the clean spring air.

Here is a lovely Irish blessing, very appropriate for Spring and the first warm rays of sun

May the Road Rise up To Meet You

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rain fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand

  1. It's that sort of spring day today, Angela! I've just been for a lovely long walk and felt the sun on my face! I love this post; it's full of the promise of spring - the new growth, new life, warm sunshine and renewed spirit.
