Loving and Missing

Pin It

Lately I've been loving...

opening the windows and letting the fresh air wash through the screen,

over the bundles of flowers sitting hither and thon, making me drunk with calm. 

and lately I've actually been missing...

the mantle of bitter cold in the dead of winter that only lifts when you curl up 
with a too hot cup of broth in the afternoon post sledding adventures...

What about you??  What have you been missing lately?   
Do you like to miss things?  I kind of love the concept of loving and missing.  
Enjoying the present, but anticipating the future at the same time...like a double dose of joy capturing...does that make sense?  

Sometimes I have a rough time being joyful at all in the present, so the moments of loving AND missing are quite wonderful I think...
I guess I make up for the down times by the double happy times...balance, right?

I'm just missing Summer! Seriously - up here in the Pacific Northwest we are patiently waiting for a nice warm stretch of good weather! That ole' snow will be here soon enough...

You must be having a heat wave where you're at????

Here in the SF Bay Area, we haven't even had summer yet. Still super mild temps. Yesterday was a "hot day". It was ~79 degrees in the sun but chilly in the shade. So I'm not dreaming of winter yet.

this year, I am soaking in every drop of summer we get. I am glad, however, that 106 is behind us. Bring on these perfect summer nights where the air smells sweet and the barefoot children chase fireflies!!!

I certainly don't miss the cold. I am enjoying the warm days. Splashing in the water, playing in the dirt, smelling pretty flowers, and enjoying the multitude of festivals. I love to live in the present during the Spring, Summer, and Fall. In the Winter I miss warm days :D
