Last year it was cherry blossom trees. This year it is bright golden tulips that make me catch my breath every time I spot one.
For me these flowers personify happiness. I see them and they make my heart feel light. They are refreshing. They are cheerful. They are my happy feeling.
When I gaze at them they pull me in and they capture my full attention. For the few seconds they have power over me, I am able to forget everything else as I revel in their beauty, in the hope they exude. They make my mind wander and wonder about all the many and glorious things I can accomplish in my life. They truly bring a smile to my face and they make me feel as if I can conquer anything.
This is what Spring is all about.
I do love yellow.It probably doesn’t surprise you that it is my favorite color. It brings me sunshine and happiness … and tulips.
