Ripples #720: Winter to Spring.
For our tribe of 31,189 busy people who share encouragement and gratitude.


If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant.
If we did not sometimes taste of adversity,
prosperity would not be so welcome.
-Anne Bradstreet


one step / one step
i stop / i take
one breath / one breath
warm sun / above
winter snow / below
i breathe / i take /
one step / one step

Despite the predictions of several groundhogs, winter seems unwilling to relinquish its reign to make way for spring. We may not be able to control the weather, but we luckily have strength and persistence to endure until the buds appear. Similarly, you may be dealing with some sort of blechiness that continues to linger stubbornly. I hope you can take a few deep breaths and hang tough. Spring is approaching, and she brings a fresh breeze and bright sunshine!

On a technical note, my fingers are crossed that this issue arrives on Monday to all 31,000 subscribers. The last two weeks have been bumpy to say the least! For those of you who missed the news about how to apply for Ripples Grants, please watch this video:
