Finally, Spring is Here

Finally, Spring is Here

I never thought we would see spring emerge after the last snowstorm we had in March and the heavy downpour from the last two weeks. Yet almost in a blink of an eye, signs of spring are simply everywhere from the birds chirping in the morning to the crocuses and daffodils blooming everywhere.   I love spring, the renewal of life, the longer days, and the warmer temps.

Like the other seasons, spring acts as a milepost that marks where we are in life — another winter under the belt, another summer to look forward to.  Yet what’s most prevalent in my mind these days is the unstoppable forward motion of time.  Five more years before Chiara goes to college, eight more years before Ines leaves.  While a lot can happen during that time frame, I know the remaining time I have with my girls will go fast.  Slowly, I’m learning to let them go as they prepare to take off and begin to define themselves in relationships and roles outside our family.
