I think about my mother every day. But usually the thoughts are fleeting - she crosses my mind like a spring cardinal that flies past the edge of your eye: startling, luminous, lovely... gone.
The robin and the cardinal share the food of the earth praying for better weather to arrive.
The raindrops hung on the branches yesterday. The rains washed against the earth promising Spring. But this morning all we see outside is white once again as the nighttime storm sneaked quietly in once more.

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
I am a big believer in the Universe. After reading The Secret and discovering the idea of manifesting what you want I ask the universe for things all the time. And the universe answers. I try to think positively and look for those things that I need in my life. The answers always seem to be out there for me if I am willing to see them and make them happen when I get the opportunity.
“Everything tells me that I am about to make a wrong decision, but making mistakes is just part of life. What does the world want of me? Does it want me to take no risks, to go back to where I came from because I didn't have the courage to say "yes" to life?”
― Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes
“There are moments when troubles enter our lives and we can do nothing to avoid them.
But they are there for a reason. Only when we have overcome them will we understand why they were there.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Fifth Mountain

That was the headline in yesterday’s paper. We are not the only ones that are sick of the cold weather and snow. But we have had it since November and it is time for it to go away now.
The forecast doesn’t look any brighter for the rest of the Spring. Below average temperatures are expected till June. Boo-hoo!!!
Meanwhile, buck up, buckeroos. It will still be in the twenties for the rest of the week. When can I put away my winter coat?
Here are a few pictures I took in Tennessee (just in case you’ve forgotten what a daffodil looks like)
