The picture is NOT current but the story is! I am EXCITED!! Well, the snow and ice are still on the ground - maybe for months and the rain has not washed enough away, but just a day ago I SAW MY FIRST ROBIN!! See I have always said that it does not take much to get me excited and this is yet one more example of those simple JOYS!!! S/he was standing in the green grass at the edge of the field at Farmer Wally's farm just where the sun had melted a big patch of snow. Now come to think of it, it was last Thursday and exactly the same day that I had the big red ball of a sunrise in the orange/yellow sky so early in the morning!! Let's keep February 18, 2010 as a day that will be remembered as special for the little blessing that came my way. Be sure to stop and look to see the gifts of the precious present!!
