One stroll down the aisles of Target, and you will know what I mean!!! The brightly colored kitchen towels just jump out at you, begging you to take them home and spruce up your dreary, winter abode. The temps here have been in the upper 40s for the past few days. The sun has peeked out of the clouds and the snow is almost completely melted off my yard. I am so thrilled that my house doesn't face north... I don't think I could face the giant piles of snow every day, knowing that they were far from being melted. Not that my view is anything spectacular, but even the brown grass makes my heart feel a little anticipation of spring. On Monday, I even opened up a few of my windows!! It felt delicious. I am such a warm weather person. To be honest, I actually prefer HOT weather. No coats to struggle with, no boots to keep track of, no wet mittens to dry out. I keep thinking of all of the new plants I put in the ground last year. They are thrilled with the winter... they are enjoying their rest and will surprise us all *soon*. My snow drops are the first act of the production that takes place in my yard. Sometimes these precious white friends pop their little heads up as early as February. Shortly after that, a few crocus will bravely arise. Until then, I will continue to do my inside projects, enjoy reading by the fire under my Snuggli, and gaze longingly at the new Spring fashions in the magazines which promise that my sweaters won't be front and center in the closet forever. That will keep a little bit of hope in my heart to make it through the next couple of months.
As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15

Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor... Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.
This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.” -Shakespeare-Hamlet
