Is It Spring Yet?

The wind is still so cold that it shakes my bones when I'm not wearing a coat. Yet, there are signs of spring popping up all around me. From the sight of fresh flowers in a vase, to little budding flowers on a maple tree, I am starting to see the reality of what is about to hit us: Spring. I cannot wait to be able to wear shorts again, to be able to jump in the pool on a hot day, to be able to run barefoot through the grass. While in my head, my mind is saying, "Spring is here!," Mother Nature is saying, "Not yet."
