February 16 Daffodils, Detours, a Day Off
The February daffodils have arrived with a flourish and soon the rest of nature’s spring secrets, now safely tucked beneath the frozen crust, will find their place.
They appear quite boldly, lifting their blond heads out of the barren soil and standing tall in the grove of pine, pecan and dogwoods. These gentle soldiers remind us that even in the cold traps of despair, one can find peace – and hope.
Take a moment, and find your daffodil.
Today, I am thankful for things that keep me hopeful and happy.
- The strength and beauty of the daffodils in my otherwise dreary front yard.
- For the detour I had to take home, frustrating at first, then filled with joyous surprises.
- And for a day off which I intend to waste wholly and selfishly on myself.
For what are you thankful?
