It's hard to believe February is half gone already. I so look forward to the coming of spring when the whole world comes back to life after the winter slumber. I thank February for giving us a little taste of what's to come with unseasonably warm days here and there. I thank February for the welcome birdsong outside the window as their voices also yearn for spring. I thank February for Valentine's Day when we are reminded to love each other every day and not just on the 14th.
