Spring has sprung...

I don't know about you, but I've been ready for Spring for about a month now.  It's time for the sun to warm the earth, melt the rest of the snow and urge the flowers from the ground.  We walked around the yard the other day and saw some of the first signs of this beautiful season.  





 Happy First Day of Spring!
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.  ~Anne Bradstreet

Hmmm, I especially love this quote.  Another one of those signs I may have missed before the Big C.  But now I find myself so keenly aware of these reminders. I am living the life I'm supposed to be living, muck and all.  Each experience has something to teach me, something I can choose to grow from.  I try my best to be thankful for all of it, even though sometimes I am knocked on my behind.
