even i did that this year - the waiting for the bad ju-ju of '10 and embracing the powerful '11. i want to hold it fragile like a tiny baby bird, afraid to let if fly not knowing if it will crash or go safely into the blue. but...i know like any momma bird that i do have to let it go regardless. all hovering ... banished now.
i bought flowers on saturday, going out into the stormy weather. they're pink and fresh - reminding me that spring will be here before you know it. i look at the cold weather and repeat that to myself. "spring will be here soon. so soon"
for the next three days i'm in charge at work. a bad situation happened and as we move forward past that, we have come to the place where we can smile about. i will say she is handling the whole thing with more grace and dignity than i could. a beautiful example of what faith can do for you.
i hope your year is off to a good start. i think mine is. it was quiet and very low key. quiet on the cusp of the year, comforting and cozy soup making on the new day, full of fun and adventures on sunday....and in the words of the song, "and i'm feeling good...."
