It's funny because February is only 2 or 3 days shorter than the other months and yet it seems to make a difference to how quickly it passes. Perhaps it is because I'm not ever really ready by the end of January for the year to be underway. Perhaps it is because a lot happens - Valentine's Day, birthdays, pancake day, lent... A lot for a small month.
This year I have also been poorly for 2 weeks of the month. We have had to cancel things and miss seeing people. The children have all been poorly too so in some ways it's been ok - we have hibernated under blankets and read stories and watched movies. And I keep reminding myself that this too shall pass.
I guess it's sort of all of those things and more that has made February fly by.
I'm ready for March now. Ready for spring, warmth, outside-ness coming back into our lives in a bigger and bigger way. We are thinking of adding a dog to our family this year. It's not a decision we have completely made yet but we shall see. I like the idea of having to go outside everyday in all seasons. I saw people on our street walking dogs in the snow today.
Life is all a big adventure and one day we won't be here to enjoy it any more so my goal for March is to remind myself of what is important to me, to connect with my husband and children and enjoy life. How does that saying go?
One life. Live it.
