Thanksgiving is here. Soon it will be Christmas and then New Year. Time for getting together with family and friends. A time to surround ourselves with the warmth of love of our near and dear ones as the weather seemingly gives us a cold shoulder.
But I am high on one other thing. The Anticipation!!
I am looking forward for Spring! Coming originally from the plains of India which is a sub-tropical country, I had not experienced such stark changes in the weather earlier. I experienced my first snow-fall in the USA. I love the way the fall colors set a whole scenery at fire.
But it is spring for which I wait with bated breath. It is as though through winter Mother Nature sighs with content and leisure; like resting after a long toil of working wonders through the year. And then around spring, she gets up, claps her hands and decides "Enough rest! lets get back to work". The Robin brings in her message and the plants shiver and shudder and come out of the long slumber. And suddenly they are all in a hurry to flower. Aah!! the wonderful, intoxication of the floral scents that waft the air. Its time to feast ones eyes. A sudden burst of color and beauty. Nothing is more glorious or magical than the wonders of nature. We just need to get in touch with it!
Just as winters remind us how important our family and friends are to us, Spring should remind us of our close association with Nature. But for the anticipation of the colors of flowers and new leaves, the scents of the blooms and the chirping of the birds that spring brings, winter would lose its charm!

Spring will be here again before we know it Alka. I must admit that I too find value in anticipation, it makes the reward all the more sweeter.
