Seek And Find: Hope

Look! Do you see him? What a thrill to see our first Robin of the year!

My high school bus driver used to make a grand occasion out of seeing her first Robin of the year. Driving a full size bus on the snowy back hill roads of Pennsylvania will do that to a person!

But even here in Indiana, where we don't have as many hills and not nearly as much snow, seeing a Robin still makes me smile and thank the Lord. I love spring!! And this little bird just told me its on its way!


The three grand essentials of happiness are something to do, someone to love, and something to hope for.

I'm thanking God for all the little things today, including this little Robin and the hope he brings of Spring!

I've seen a couple cardinals so far but no robins. I'll have to look closer.

It gave me goosebumps!

I wouldn't know a robin from a woodchuck... but it sure is cute!

Oh boy am I hoping for Spring!!! I think I check the 10 day outlook on weather.com at least a couple times a day.

Thanks for stopping by my place and glad you had a nice time looking around.
