Girls Write Out
Wednesday, March 03, 2010
Spring is coming! If Mel weren't in bed, I'd have him help me post a photo of the cats lingering on the sunroom window sill, chattering with aggressive abandon at the singing birds outside. I love the birdsong, and the change on the calendar from February to March. Aside from the fact that March often means stormy weather and wind...and my tax also means spring! Hope! New life!

I wish I could play a recording for you of the singing birds outside. They always give me hope that something new is just over the rise, that the darkness of January and February have passed, and even if we do face more cold weather, it won't last long here in the Ozarks.

I can already see some new red buds on the trees outside, and the pollen count was high the other day. Life is already preparing the advance. I love all those signs of renewed life!

What do you love about spring? What brings you hope after a time of darkness?

Sorry, guys, that I posted before discovering a problem, so you got the post twice. Now if I'll just not mess up my taxes that way...

We're going to be nearly 50 by Saturday. I'm sooo ready for spring!

Winters are bad in Indiana because of lack of sunshine. I can handle the cold and snow but I sure miss the sun!

I know about that desperate need for sunlight, Colleen. You're as gray up there as we are down here. Today is sunshine, and I'm frustrated I can't be out in it!

Still chilly here in Arkansas but the sun is finally shining.

I love to wake up and hear the sweet sounds of the mourning doves, cardinals and robins. It is a gift from God, it really is.

Yes, the birdsong is especially beautiful. My favorite music except for the whisper of wind over the Grand Canyon.

Oh, yeah, I forgot about the spring peepers. Love them!

Yes, spring! I'm with you, Cheryl, renewed life! New hope! New opportunities!

I can't wait to see my flower garden popping with new blooms. I meet Jesus there. It's one of our special places.

Your post made my heart lighter just by reading it. Thank you, Cheryl!

And you reminded me of another blessing from spring--the tulips and jonquils someone planted years ago that keep popping up.

This is fascinating.
I’d been taught that left-aligned labels are preferred, to support the prototypical F-shaped eye-tracking heatmap of web browsing. The idea is that it supports easy vertical scanning.
