Welcome, March


It has been the longest winter ever.

Record-breaking cold swooped in during December, invaded our usually balmy climate.
January was a series of cold, hard days, and February's chill never abated.

We are so ready.

So March came, at last, as we knew it would if we could just hold on.

Yesterday, March came with clouds and cold wind to match our breaking hearts as we said goodbye to someone too young to be gone forever; someone who touched lives and made them better.

Today, as we battle our sinus infections and raw throats, March has brought us a dreary day of rain/snow mix and clouds that mirrors what we are feeling.

MARCH.
Please. Go. Out. And. Try. Again.
Please come in again with your Gulf winds bringing robins and honey bees.
Please show us your best; we are needy.

Why standest thou afar off, O Lord? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble?
Psalm 10:1
