I have always wondered why so many people want to skip over certain seasons to rush to the next one. Sometimes they want to skip to summer, then when they have the hot days of summer, decide they want the cooler seasons. People get in too big of a hurry instead of appreciating each of them. Whether it is the beautiful spring days, summer fun, leaves changing colors, or playing in the snow, there is something enjoyable about each season.
Spring is a magical season. It is the season for Easter. Everything appears to be coming back to life. The flowers and trees start to bloom and the animals start to reappear again. I love to go outside on a nice spring day and feel the warm breeze and listen to the birds sing. The spring rain is also very relaxing and comforting when it isn’t accompanied by flooding or tornadoes. I feel a sense of balance in the spring and it gives me ...view middle of the document...
A lot of the excitement of summer is celebrating the 4th of July with barbeques and fireworks. Summer is also a time for birthday parties for my family since all our birthdays are in June and July.
Fall seems to slow things down a little. For me, this is a season that is more peaceful and goes back to enjoying nature. The leaves on the trees change to shades of yellows, oranges, and reds. I love to go for a walk or a ride in the car to see the beautiful fall scenery. The garden is usually still going which keeps me busy with freezing and canning vegetables. Thanksgiving is a day in the fall that is very special for my family. I always look forward to having a nice dinner with my family and remembering, in this crazy world, the things that are really important. I never understood how thanksgiving for some people is going to the store to fight other people for the best deals on their Christmas presents. I feel sorry for those people.
When winter comes, I like to hibernate. I mostly stay inside, but I enjoy watching the snow fall from the sky. It takes me back to when I was younger and enjoyed playing in the snow. Now, it is more like my grandchildren playing in the snow while I watch from the window with a cup of hot cocoa. Sometimes I will go outside to join the snowball fight or to help make the snowmen, but not for very long. I love to cook in the winter time. Chili or soup cooking all day in the crockpot is something that makes me very happy .One of the best things about winter, is looking forward to Christmas. The Christmas spirit can be very powerful. Spending time with family and good food are two of my favorite things.
If you watch certain people or even stores, they are always trying to get to the next holiday or season. For me, each season brings a mixture of memories, emotions, and an appreciation of the past, and a hope for the future. I always try to remember to enjoy each season and what it brings instead of trying to hurry to the next. The most important part of all of all the seasons is the time you spend with the people you care about, and of course, all the family dinners with good food!
