Hopeful

It has been the worst
The winter that never ends
Record temps and snow
*****
But we're almost there
It's only a few more weeks
Until Salvation
*****
Spring is coming soon
Grass will sprout and leaves will grow
Sun will shine again
*****
Oh how wonderful
To take a walk to the park
And swing in the breeze
*****
Spring, won't you hurry?
Breath life into us once more
Let us feel your warmth

And spring will come soon, I promise! Hang in there. You can lauge at me as much as you want in August. :)

Oh, and I'm truly sorry to hear about Brett. I felt the same way when Craig Biggio retired (baseball, Astros).

I hope you feel cheery soon! For us in the Pacific Northwest, it's not the snow that can get one down, but gray skies, day after day after day, with a constant little drizzle. The year I first moved to Washington State, I think it rained the entire month of JUNE! Can you believe it?

I hear you...We just now have the tiniest blades coming up of what I think are the daffodils, but we have snow in the forecast for tomorrow. Sigh.

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
