Sometimes life isn't easy.
Disappointments and little sorrows darken the skies.
We are saying some sad goodbyes in our family this week, and the cottage has fallen through and there are other reasons why tears have fallen in our home.
But there are reasons for joy and gladness, even on the days when you have to hunt a little harder for them.
Signs of spring are showing up already.
The snowdrops are blooming.
And we are choosing deliberately to stay thankful and happy, and choose the bright side.
God is so good to us and we know it.
Spring is just around the corner and hope abounds.
The door of possibility never closes.
