But wonderful things happen in March as well - my dad turned 91 on the 10th, something we weren't sure we would get to celebrate. And then my niece has a birthday on the 16th. And of course St. Patrick's Day is a must for us with our Irish heritage.
So, as I spoon my corned beef and cabbage into a bowl, and get ready to begin another week, I am thankful for glitter on the kitchen table from my daughter's craft project, the beautiful flowers my husband sent me - just because - and that even within the shadows, there is the promise of light.
Have a wonderful week.
