Seasons Change

Life is a roller coaster, to say the least, but one thing I am learning as I get older (please, no old jokes) is that life is nothing more and nothing less than a series of seasons. We had a Hospitality Department Meeting last night, and this sort of came up. After talking with the leaders in this department we all began to realize that the lull we have been feeling is not confined to just us, but the entire area is experiencing it. It's funny how we can be so arrogant as to think that anything, good or bad, is only about us. Our area has been hit by a snow storm, an ice storm, , and a financial storm. Everything seems to be in slow motion, no matter how much we add to our to do list. It's like ol' man winter has crept into every aspect of life and begun to put a freeze on more than just the air. BUT SEASONS CHANGE!

Today, for the first time in a long time, it is suppose to reach 70 degrees. The snow is all gone and now the birds are starting to sing, and the birds on the bat are starting to play (Did you really think I could talk about spring and not mention Cardinals Baseball?). SEASONS CHANGE! The natural always mirrors the supernatural... something is changing. It's time to stir, arise and shake ourselves, for winter has passed and the springtime has come. Our SEASON IS CHANGING!
