out of the blue



Sometimes, when we are mired in our discontent, something hits us, out of the blue. And we are reminded of the beauty all around us. Spring may not be here quite yet, but there is hope...

And hope may be all we need to keep us going.

Beautiful image...even if we don't have the snow you have, everything is brown and I long for green and new buds. Stay warm.
