The Smell of Spring

         There are so many beautiful things in this life, which typically go unnoticed by the average human being. Just the other day, I was taking my lunch tray up to the trash cans to dump the left over remnants of sludge (my school lunch), when I passed the exit leading to the courtyard. For some reason not yet disclosed to myself, the doors where flung completely open, letting in a misty excess from the down poor occurring outside. The mist enveloped me and the cool drops could be felt lighting on the bare skin of my scrawny arms. Then the most lovely and familiar smell caused me to turn my head toward the door, close my eyes, and saver the sent. It was the smell of spring; a blend of newly budding flowers, sprouting grass, mud and the rain that created it all. It has to be my favorite smell in the entire world and I anticipate it's first coming every April. I yell to my friends to share in my new found experience, but upon arriving at the door, they only complained that they were getting wet. They don't know what I know.

  1. I love this! There are so many natural things that God gave us to brighten our mood, every season has something to offer if we would only open our eyes to His love for us. You have been given the talent of expressing this beautifully.
