Linking up with Cami at Thankful Thursday
"What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth ....the promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again." Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games.
My daughter told me the other day the hardest part of the year for her is near the end of winter when she can't wait for Springtime.
Spring - where I live it's not supposed to hit until April but lately.....the weather's been amazing. It feels great to not have to wear jackets, hats and mitts. And there's a feeling of lightness and joy. I see it on the faces of everyone I meet. Their smiles says it all. Today I'm grateful for.....
-the awesome weather.....being able to get outside and smell the air and see the buds beginning to push out on the trees.
-the guy I'm writing about is coming to see us this weekend. Writing his story has reminded me....no matter how dark it gets.......if you hold on.....and trust....things will turn around.
-my daughter has been talking about which university she wants to attend. She still has two years to go but she's leaning on the one close to us. Yeahhhh.
-I got stuck trying to figure something out on the computer. My 11 yr old pushed me aside. Let me see. She said. In two minutes she unstuck me.
-No matter what the season....or what life brings.....He always shines Light, joy and freedom. Just like the cold and gloom of winter eventually leaves....so does the tough times in life. There's always 'springtime' to look forward to.
