It's All Temporary

It's all of 9 degrees in Small Town this morning, and the headline in Small Town Newspaper reads "Jobless Rate On the Rise." sigh.

With those things in mind, I present you with this.

That's yet another wonderful, inspirational and beautifully written piece, Robyn.
Your editorials have a way of making me sit back and smile and say "Well, that's alright then."
A rare gift.

Oh, and by the way …
Roll on spring!

I like your piece better than the headline story.

Wonderful Robyn! I felt every word. It made me sad too but smiling all the while as I conjured up this image of a stomping, crazy-mad tiny girl finally able to return, indignant at the elements, to her home! hehe.......ahhhhh.

I wish our newspapers would let us write pieces like this. It's all news, news and boring news.

"[I}sn’t that what one season does for the next, makes you appreciate each part of the cycle more than if you just had one to live with all year long? If you never had a hardship to survive, and one particularly where you worked with your neighbors to survive it, would you remember to be grateful for spring?"

I live by those words.

That was a fabulous piece of work.
