Waking up the last week of March to negative temperatures can really be discouraging. When people ask when the baby is due and I answer, this summer, but winter never seems to end - that is kind of discouraging too. Winter and pregnancy - both have a way of going on longer then we desire.
But taking a break to soak up some vitamin D on the deck when the afternoon sun warms the deck to 20 degrees, now that is a little bit of hope. I am, without any sadness, waving good-bye to this last day of March. I am ready for a new month, a new season and new days; no matter what they bring.
