“Despite the forecast, live like it's Spring.”

You know it's Springtime when you see ol' Debra washing windows, dusting upstairs, scrubbing the bathtub and ironing shirts in the living room while watching decorating shows and becoming so inspired that she flung away all the books on her mantle and placed old white dishes, books and seashells there instead:
(I'd like to find a white oval mirror and hang it sideways.)
Oh, the sunshine we get at Hobbit Cottage! I spend hours sitting here, staring while white light spreads and shifts, warming the carpet and twinkling upon the glass table.
I hope you're excited today about Springtime, even if you, like me, still see snow outside your windows. There's the energy of anticipation and upcoming months of beautiful weather to celebrate, even if you're husband-less, childless, money-less or whatever-less (temporarily or otherwise). Yet if we have God and Grace on this first day of Springtime? We shall be content in an invisible richness.
Spring has come and Winter has loosened his icy grip. He may sputter awhile longer, but his roar will not be what it once was. And so we rejoice.
"But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that." ... 1 Timothy 6:8
“It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want—oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”
― Mark Twain
“I enjoy the spring more than the autumn now. One does, I think, as one gets older.”
― Virginia Woolf, Jacob's Room
