The sun is my best friend.
It lights up my windows.
It warms the soggy backyard so my kids can play happily in the mud for hours.
It encourages the baby leaves growing on the trees to come out and grow.
It flashes in my eyes and makes me squint.
It fills my heart with a sigh of happiness.
It draws me into its warmth and I bask in its glow.
Winter is long. And wet. And rainy. And long. And damp. And did I mention wet?
But then the Spring comes again, and with it the sun. At least on some days.
