After some wonderful time off for Thanksgiving with my family, I decided to post this reminder to you parents out there:

Don’t blink!

For today’s Photo Friday, Dawn and I want to remind you that Spring will come.

If you have a case of the winter blues due to cold, flu, sniffles, Mondays, February, gray sky, blizzard or slush, just remember that Spring is not so far away. Soon the sun will warm your skin and your soul’s hope for the new year. God is great, and 2013 is ripe with hope even if 2012 was less than average. Here’s how to make the most of the new year.

And for your mild amusement, here’s a little rhyme Dawn always liked:

Tulips in the garden
Tulips in the park
But the tulips I love best
Are the two lips in the dark

See! Made you smile!
