I love this picture for a lot of reasons. The main one is that it captures Phoenix’s silly side. He looks so happy and goofy. He can be very silly. He can be very serious, too. Sometimes I think that’s my own personality reflecting on him. I can be way too serious. Maybe I should get an Orbee ball of my own.
But today, I love this picture because it shows green grass. We have no green grass here. We have no grass of any color. You couldn’t find grass around here if you tried. It’s covered with snow. Heavy snow. Deep snow. Thick, frozen, icy, miserable, wretched, ugly, depressing . . . oh . . . sorry . . . you get the point. Enough snow already. Some friends trialed in St. Louis last weekend. They said the snow there is gone. That’s just 4 hours south of us. There is hope.
I’m just going to sit here and look at the grass for awhile and think about spring.
Today I am thankful for the cookies a co-worker's mom made for us.
