February


I once complained to a friend that February was the Danny DeVito of months -- short and mean. Then I went and had a baby on her birthday on the last day of February and suddenly, the month was transformed.

Now every February I am guaranteed a Valentine, a companion with whom to visit the folks in Puerto Rico if I can afford to go, and a celebration to plan and anticipate. And I've even come to realize that February has its own icy beauty and Danny DeVito is a great family man, actor, producer and director. Someone I wouldn't mind my February baby emulating.

Isn't it amazing what a little change of perspective can do for you?

Yes perspective changes everything doesn't it? And my 4 yr old daughter and I are looking at the white squirrel and are amazed because we didn't know that there were white squirrels!

February does hold it's own special-ness.

AND Danny DeVito and Mr R share the exact same birthday.

happy February!
