“April showers bring May flowers,” we’ve all heard this saying, I’m assuming. Today is the first day of spring (well, concerning the weather at least) and I am SO ready for it. I am done with the cold weather and what felt like constant snow. Enough with the storms and bring on the warmer weather! I’m ready for my pink pastel jeans and light spring jackets!
I have always felt like spring is a time of rebirth and new life. The flowers begin to pop, the color of the trees comes back and everything smells fresh. I even heard birds outside my window this morning. There are joggers along the road and people planting in the community garden.
I finally feel like I can take a breath of fresh air.
But, with that fresh air comes a burst of pollen. Allergies! I don’t even have allergies- I don’t sneeze, or cough. My eyes don’t water or itch but every April for about a week I get the sniffles. I’m just waiting for it to happen.
With most things, I have to be careful with medicine I take. Who has allergies and Lupus and what do you do?
More importantly, how do you react to spring? What effect does it have on you?
