Spring Thaw? - Thankful Thursday
I've been so busy that I haven't had a chance to take part in Thankful Thursday hosted by Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses.
It's February so we know for a fact that winter isn't over yet. BUT if you live anywhere near Michigan, you know what a January Thaw is. (That's when there is an unexpected warm-up and all of the snow disappears, only to come back again until the end of winter.) Well, we didn't get a January Thaw this year. But I believe it is here now in February. First the temps went up, then the snow melted, then the rains and winds came. Now, it almost feels like March!! Whatever is going on we'll take it and be thankful. The air smells like spring, and I can actually see some perennials popping up. I know they will soon be buried in snow again, but there's always hope that this year will be different. And February IS a short month after all. All I know for sure is that today, I am thankful for the anticipation of the spring to come and the rebirth of the earth.
