A lot of folks are getting pretty squirrel-y about now, myself included. This short month has been longer and colder than any February I can remember, and that's quite a few. Not to complain...okay, yes... I am complaining, not that it does much good. But fact is, this month tests our patience. You look at the calendar and think - "Wow! It's little ol' February; next thing you know it'll be March. Winter is almost over." Then these 28 days take an eternity to play out, even in regular years, let alone this ice age we're currently experiencing. Once spring arrives we'll laugh at ourselves for thinking it would never get here. It always does. Life is like that; the day-to-day drags on interminably, yet we have such a short time on this earth, really we do. The long and short of it is, squirrel-y or no, we must persevere thru to the end in order to see a new beginning.
Now where did I bury my talents?
