"expect to have hope rekindled. expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. the dry seasons in life do not last. the spring rains will come again." - sarah ban breathnach
soon the daffodils will be peeking out of winter's barren earth and we, too, can begin to reemerge. how would *you* like to emerge this spring? hmmm, i have a few ideas and they definitely tie into my dreams below. february passed quickly: short month, blizzards, valentine's. somehow it didn't hit me until the 4th or 5th that i had missed evaluating and setting my monthly goals. uh oh!
