Embrace her. She's here.
**************February arrived without an invitation. January had barely stepped out when the new girl boldly strolled in.
I initially turned my back on this uninvited guest. Later that day, I reached out to my 2010 date book. I held it in close to me as I struggled to cope with a new month's invasion of my personal time and space. I slowly turned the pages that separated January from February.
My fingers skid to a stop. A multi-colored page abruptly snared me with its vibrant patches of turquoise, gold and sea blue. Angles, lines and shapes hovered above the words of C. C. Russ. I quieted and read all nine words. "Enjoy each moment as it blossoms deep within you."
I re-accessed my feelings. Within my date book, I found day passes and rewards surely awaiting me if only I would begin to welcome the second month of this still-young year.
February is here to stay. Accustomed to her annual visits, she brought plenty to keep her busy during her four-week stay.
Are you ready for the second of twelve guests who'll come and go before your 2010 date book finally closes?
