Staying positive while waiting for spring

Spring has not sprung so far. With the exception of Sunday, March 10, the weather has been cold. With Easter so close we can only hope for some warm weather and sunshine.

It is miserable trying to hunt Easter eggs in the snow. How can we ladies show off our Easter outfits with winter coats covering them? Cleveland weather is so unpredictable not even our local weather forecasters can always predict it accurately.

I would like to put my winter clothes away but that would be a big mistake. Hauling out boxes of warm weather clothing off the shelf when the weather has the potential to drop into the low 30s is not for me. I must be more patient. After all,  living in Cleveland for most of my life I shouldn't expect a tropical paradise. A person can still dream but I won't hold my breath.

It could be worse. I could live in eastern New Jersey. Disasters of the magnitude of Hurricane Sandy are rare in our area.  I should count my blessings and stop complaining but sometimes that's hard. Who knows, Easter Sunday may be a beautiful day. Even if the weather continues to be chilly I will try to keep a positive attitude. Life is not perfect but focusing on the negative doesn't help.

Wishing you a Happy Easter with all the trimmings. Don't worry about the weather. It will change.
