The Letter Series: Dear Spring Break

Hello Spring Break, my long-awaited friend.  Lovely to see you.

Your presence makes me feel better that not one person participated in the meme linky I posted on my blog yesterday (#humblingexperiences).  I am also thankful to have the opportunity to actually fold the laundry that's been laying on my couch for the last week.  So, yeah.  Thanks.

I keep trying to imagine how my time with you will be best spent.  Most people would probably run to Florida at the first opportunity.  But something in me says I should use you to look around the dustier areas of my life, and appreciate the fact that I have time to reevaluate some of the habits I've thrown on a shelf for the last few weeks.  Like prayer.  Like Bible study.  Like personal journaling.

But I fully intend to enjoy our weekend trip toward the end of my time with you.  Spring break isn't spring break without at least a tiny bit of time out of town.  Favorite is really looking forward to that time, so thanks for not disappointing him.

I probably won't think much about work while we hang, Spring Break.  I'll revisit those things right before I know you're leaving, but I think we all need some time to relax and appreciate everything around us.  Of course, I'll have that opportunity just a few weeks after you leave, because Summer Break plans to visit mid-May.  But that doesn't mean I shouldn't appreciate you while you're here.

So that's what I'm going to do--appreciate.  I just thought I'd let you know where I stood.

Thanks for the visit.

I am going to do the linky! But I already had today's post written and didn't want to waste it. I mean, once I win the MegaMillions, I will have all the time in the world to blog. Well, after we get back from Sheena's and New York.
