Goodbye February

I know that February doesn’t officially end until Sunday -- but this month has been the longest ‘shortest’ month of the year for me and I’m ready to say goodbye to it.

I do try to live my life under the auspices of ‘acceptance’ and ‘adaptation’ with a large dose of ‘gratitude’ thrown in – but this month I seemed to be in a state of determined resistance. On my behalf there have been a few obstacles thrown up across my path. Our weather here in western North Carolina has been unusually challenging – we have had snow storms; ice storms; grey, cold, dismal days; roads that were impassable to even the postal people and the newspaper delivery truck. Personal deadlines abounded while meetings were canceled and rescheduled and canceled again. Add to this a huge part of a tree fell on our garage resulting in roof work and the rest of the tree being cut down; I had outpatient surgery, oh and did I mention those deadlines!

Yes, I am ready to welcome a new month and with it a definite attitude change on my part.  Okay – enough complaining – I’m opening the door to the sunshine today in the hopes that February will get the hint and move on out to welcome March.

  1. It all looks rather bleak so i hope that Spring comes soon to you. The sunlight coming in the door is promising. We're just coming into Autumn downunder here, and it's arrived rather suddenly yesterday on the 1st of March.
