Red is for Springtime – awhhhhhhh – by far my favorite season! On the way to work today, I was thinking about a favorite childhood memory. I was about ten or eleven years old; it was springtime. I came home from school and my mother had all the windows open in the house. There was an unforgettable aroma that I can almost smell as I write. It was the fragrance of new life – freedom – the ability to just breathe. Today coming to work, I realized that is how I feel, one year and six months post gastric bypass surgery - shedding one hundred and three pounds and counting.
