Spiders and Spring

I don't remember ever enjoying the beauty of Spring as much as I have this year!


Maybe it is because I am aging?.....
or maybe it is because the Winter was so long?


or maybe it is simply because I stepped on a spider last year for the first time in 40 years!
 (It may sound crazy but somehow I think it helped free me of my fear of spiders)
last years spider inside flower

 
This year I am noticing more of the beauty around me
since I am not constantly obsessing over spiders!

I encourage others to try stepping on the 'spiders' in your life!

Spiders are good. They help keep us free of other harmful insects. I can't kill them -- I just scoot them somewhere else. Glad you're enjoying the spring. I am, too!

We don't have many signs of spring yet. I'm not a spider fan, they creep me out!

Kim, My name is Mitch Thurmer and I have had MS for 24 years, Long story short, Tara Greer and I have been online friends, fellow MS'ers for a long time. She has vanished. You are listed on her blog, have you got any idea what has happened to her. I went as far as calling the MS Soc in that area and the "law" prevents them from telling me anything, my email is mthurmer271@comcast.net. Her blog is Living Day to day with Multiple Sclerosis. Thanks, I am afraid something bad has happened.Thhanks, Mitch

We are a pair. I am enjoying so much everything about spring, I want to just inhale it all!! I think it is because I am getting so much older...the older I get, the more and more i appreciate things. I have a terrible fear of spiders, and it is certainly not getting any better. I CAN step on one if it is small enough.

Spring is the best time of the year for me.I love seeing all the plants come to life again,and don't even mind a spider or two,outside.

Spiders are fine. I have spider shooing duties in this house.
My metaphorical spiders need a bit more (a lot more) work.
I am glad that Spring has finally reached you.

I love spring too. Nice seeing everything brand new and pretty.

I'm not much of a 'spider' person --and am always checking my shoes for them before I put them on!!!!!! BUT your yellow 'spiders' are gorgeous...

We did have a rough winter this year --so I think that makes spring much more special...

Hugs,
Betsy

Bam.
I needed the nudge about stepping on my spiders. Someone (Eleanor Roosevelt, maybe?) said, "Do the thing you fear, and death of fear is certain." I know that in my head, but the rest of my body won't get on board with it.

And I'm feeling the same about this spring. I think it's because it WAS such a long winter.

Spiders make me shudder, I have such a silly fear of them, but I have a great spider catcher which keeps them at arms distance away while I remove them from the home.

Whatever the reason, it's wonderful to find yourself soaking up all the beauty spring has to offer with fresh eyes.
