It is almost March. Spring is right around the corner...

There are many things in life that will catch your
eye. But only a few will catch your heart.... -Ben Crenshaw
The greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.
-Martha Washington
I don't think of all the misery, but of all the beauty that still remains.
-Anne Frank
If we could see the miracle of a single flower
clearly, our whole life would change.
When you have only two pennies left in the world,
buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other.
-Chinese Proverb
A Blessing by James Wright Just off the highway to Rochester, Minnesota, Twilight bounds softly forth on the grass. And the eyes of those two Indian ponies Darken with kindness. They have come gladly out of the willows To welcome my friend and me. We step over the barbed wire into the pasture Where they have been grazing all day, alone. They ripple tensely, they can hardly contain their happiness That we have come. They bow shyly as wet swans. They love each other. There is no loneliness like theirs. At home once more, They begin munching the young tufts of spring in the darkness. I would like to hold the slenderer one in my arms, For she has walked over to me And nuzzled my left hand. She is black and white, Her mane falls wild on her forehead, And the light breeze moves me to caress her long ear That is delicate as the skin over a girl's wrist. Suddenly I realize That if I stepped out of my body I would break Into blossom.
Have a sweet week...

What a nice way to start a Monday! I love how you put your name in the cup, very cleaver. I love tea too, and miss the holiday nutcracker tea. Echinanca is my favorite! Have a great day!
