I finally did it!

“Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward the life that G-d intended for you with grace, strength, courage, and confidence.”
     – Og Mandino

“Sometimes our fate resembles a fruit tree in winter. Who would think that those branches would turn green again and blossom, but we hope it, we know it.” - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

It's spring fever.... You don't quite know what it is you DO want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” – Mark Twain

“Be like a flower, turn your face to the sun.” – Kahlil Gibran

"Yesterday is but today's memory, tomorrow is today's dream." - Kahlil Gibran

“Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.” – Og Mandino

Seems like a trivial accomplishment, but today's snow got me all psyched! What a difference a day makes!
