I was sitting in my school’s library a few days ago, trying to finish my homework but distracted by the blinding sun shining through the big, church-like windows. For the first time in what felt like years, it wasn’t just bright outside; it was sunny. The sky was blue and there was sunshine! Actual sunshine! A sign that spring will soon (?) be here.
Don’t get me wrong: I love winter, but only when it snows. Even then, one or two snow storms in the beginning of the season is enough for me. The rest of the season makes me sad and constantly longing for the warm weather and flowered scenery of spring.
I find myself daydreaming about how beautiful it will be once the season changes. I think about how I can finally walk from the parking lot to the entrance of my school without my hair freezing! How I can enjoy the smell of lilacs every time I step foot outside, instead of the cold air that makes my nose run! How the only sound I’ll hear in the morning is birds chirping! How I can open my car windows and breathe the fresh air! *sigh*
Oh, spring. I love and miss you. And I can’t wait for the day that I can enjoy all of these wonderful things. But for now, as I sit in my bedroom with my space heater turned up high, I’ll enjoy this playlist filled with songs that remind me of springtime. I hope they ease any pain you’re feeling about this winter, too:
And once the seasons change, you can bet I’ll be listening to these lovely tunes as I drive around with the windows down. My hair will be blowing in the wind, and I’ll think to myself, “I can’t wait for summertime.”
