Thought for the Day

The greatest part of our happiness depends on our dispositions, not our circumstances. - Martha Washington

A friend sent me an email with this quotation at the end of it and I liked it so much I thought I'd put it in a blog to better remember it.

Today was a gorgeous spring day in New England, 60 degrees, light breeze, sunny and the air smells so fresh and clean. The crocus are just finishing up their show, bright bunches of purples, yellows and white that add color to the otherwise drab gardens. The grass is still brown and only the tiniest of shoots are coming up where the perennials will be later on this spring.

We've had some typical weather for our area over the past week; a chilly ocean breeze has been keeping us cooler than it is inland. There have been clouds, rain and drizzle most days so today it was heavenly to see the sun and have some warmer temperatures. A nice hint of what is to come after the next batch of rain we'll be getting. What's that saying? April showers bring May flowers? I can't wait!
