Spring brought Heidi!!

My sister Heidi was here for a short visit.  She arrived Saturday afternoon, and left on Monday evening.  We went to the Museum of Art Carl Bloch  Exhibit on Saturday night at BYU.  It was fun to have her here.  We went to lunch together on Monday before we took Heidi to the airport for her 8:00 pm flight home to AZ.

Here are some fun spring time quotes:

“wind blows cold:  when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ” ~Charles Dickens

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.  ~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke

“It’s spring fever.  That is what the name of it is.  And when you’ve got it, you want – oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”  ~Mark Twain

“Hoe while it is spring, and enjoy the best anticipations.  It is not much matter if things do not turn out well. ” ~Charles Dudley Warner

Awake, thou wintry earth –
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, “An Easter Hymn”

I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden.  ~Ruth Stout

No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.  ~Proverb

Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.  ~Doug Larson

Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day.  ~W. Earl Hall

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.  ~Anne Bradstreet

The year’s at the spring
And day’s at the morn;
Morning’s at seven;
The hillside’s dew-pearled;
The lark’s on the wing;
The snail’s on the thorn;
God’s in His heaven –
All’s right with the world!
~Robert Browning

No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.  ~Hal Borland

Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.  ~Virgil A. Kraft

Love to all of you!–Melanie
