TGIF: Gratitude for Hope

Have you ever heard someone say: enjoy each moment as it happens? Or something similar? I have. I can appreciate the sentiment of not missing out on today by focusing on the future. However, about this time of year every year since I moved to the Pacific Northwest, I begin to look forward with hope to spring. The dreary rain and fog get to me and, as I do now, I usually end up with a winter cold too. I love watching my puppies play in front of me tonight and having pleasant conversation with my dear hubby. And I am hopeful for the day the sun returns and the warm rolls in. Yes, I am grateful for hope in the future.
