This morning, my car's outside temperature gauge registered 39 degrees on the drive to school. The sky spat out rain, intermittently, and the light was shimmery and beautiful. Once the kids were at school I braved the elements for a walk with a friend. Shortly after heading out the door, we saw a full rainbow that ended in the sound. Later, I sat at my computer, picking up a writing project I hadn't worked on in weeks. Some movement caught my eye. I looked up and was surprised to see two hummingbirds flitting about, just outside the window. These little happenings gave the day an auspicious air that stays with me even now.
I'm looking forward to daylight savings time this weekend, to entering the rest of the days of the year. Days of celebration and comfort and warmth.
