Today is the first day of Spring – it is the Spring Equinox (also called the March equinox or vernal equinox). This year the Spring Equinox falls on Wednesday, March 20. This event marks the astronomical first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere.
We now get to enjoy the increasing sunlight hours, along with earlier dawns and later sunsets. I’m sure most of you get a little excited about this change in the season…it sure seems like nature is reminding us that life goes on, no matter what. The first Spring I experienced without Morgan was like a slap in the face…it was hard for my heart to understand how life could continue on, without a hitch, when Morgan was no longer a part of this life. The pain was immeasurable. Now, after 7 + years, I understand a lot more – doesn’t mean the pain is any less, it just means I understand how and why life continues on, Spring brings forth new life, and the lives we have lost are not ever really gone.
Wishing you all a wonderful and bright Spring 🙂
