snapping out of it...

February is a long month despite it's fewer days. 
We have had snow and temperatures in the 80s. 
My palm trees are ice-nipped and the neighbor's cherry tree in blooming. 
I am so very glad that this is the last day of this, my least favorite month.

I have a confession. I've been in a little funk... a bit sad and lethargic.
I hate feeling that way. It is contrary to all I believe about thinking positive 
and moving forward. But, I had a wee epiphany! I had a very sad moment
about my son leaving for US Navy bootcamp in a few months. Afterwards
I realized that this is what has been making me sadder than usual. 

I know he is doing the right thing. He is going into an elite field where
he will receive wonderful training. He will be safer in an aircraft carrier
than many who serve in the military. He is bright and determined.
I am very proud of him. 
Still, my heart is aching. 

But, spring is in the air and I am blessed beyond measure. 
I am shaking off the blues and embracing this day!
Life is too short, too dear to give over to sadness.

Life stands before me like an eternal spring
 with new and brilliant clothes.

coming soon!

We had snow last Wednesday and bitter cold, but I am elated to say
that it is going to be in the 70sthis week in the Dallas suburbs!!!! JOY!!!
I feel spring waiting in the wings, preparing her beautiful
floral costume! I also feel my spirits lifting! Lest I start feeling too
triumphant for surviving winter,I remind myself...
we have a few more weeks of potentially wintery weather, but for today~
I am so grateful for the sun and the little harbingers of spring in the air!
My creativity benefits from this change of seasons! I have been
 making some pretty new pendants and bracelets for my shop.
I need to complete a few more before I list them, but you can see 
some of my jewelry here...
I hope spring is on the horizon for you, also!♥

I ♥ Phil!

Punxutawney Phil did NOT see his shadow today!
Yes, I am willing to put my faith in a fat rodent. 
It is 15 degrees in the Dallas suburbs and icy, so yes, any little thing
that indicates spring's approach sounds good to this mermaid!
Hurry! Hurry!
