sometimes I want to have a talk with mother nature about reliability. I'd tell her that it's good to be winter during "winter time" and that snow should only happen during three months of the year. and would it kill her to stop playing tricks on the weather man?! but then, when I really think about it, I'm so glad the weather is out of my hands. Sometimes I like being reminded how small I am, that the season's may not always change how I want them to but they always come around when I need them most.

today, I'm thankful for the tiny specks of green peeking up in the grey around my town. it makes me feel alive and excited, not for any one thing but for everything.
For everything that's just around the corner.
