The Death of February
Many years ago, my mother-in-law gave me a gift of a Precious Moments figurine. I didn't own a single Precious Moments figurine, nor did I express an interest in becoming a collector. But something about this particular figurine must have made her think of me. It was titled "February", and it depicted a little ragamuffin child kneeling before a rosebud peeking through the snow. It looked to me like someone paying homage at a grave site.
Yep! That perfectly sums up my feelings bout February!
I am so happy to see February die. I know that it's the shortest month of the year, but why does it feel so long?
My thoughts are turning to warmer days. The birds are singing, the sun is shining, and I am going to make myself get out of this house and enjoy some fresh air today.
Here's a little something I've been crafting these days. I have been willing spring to come, one stitch at a time.
March is coming in like a lamb today. I think I'll enjoy it.
Pray for spring!
