We in the Midwest…

 

Quips and Quotes . . .

Speaking of transitions . . .

Those of us who live in the Midwest do not take changing of a new season lightly. We really spring into “spring!”  Though it is only March 30th as I write this blog post for April, my deck chairs have been washed and ready. I wait for the pansies that are shivering in the cold to bloom and show off the beauty and hope of new life.  Change is good! Our hearts are stirred to look ahead.

These quotes from others are good reminders:
