Janice at had posted recently about how she loves hearing the call of the red-winged blackbird - a sure sign of spring.  I share this love with Janice as I grew up around the lakes/marshes and that sound is very familiar and comforting to me.

Last night I was a little blue.  I was standing at the kitchen sink and something caught my eye hopping by right under the window:  THE FIRST ROBIN OF THE YEAR.  It was a sign for me - new life - hope - cheer up!  The sun is shining so bright today - it is a good day!  I hope and pray that anyone out there needing a sign of new life or hope receives it.  Sometimes it comes in the simplest of of things.

Lisa, Hope you are having a better day. It gets so hard sometime for us to stop and notice the simple things. In them we can find our greatest rewards. Blessings for a great weekend.

I am waiting to see my first robin yet this year. I hope soon! We had 15 inches of snow this past wednesday so I hope if we do have some robins around here they are doing fine. I love your blog.

That is such a cheerful sign of spring...and a good way to chase off those will-winter-ever-end blues! Haven't seen any here yet, but it shouldn't be too long.
Smiles, Karen

Lisa, your blog is wonderful. I love this post. Someone once told me: pay attention to what you notice and notice what you pay attention to. My theory is that gifts (signs [like of 'spring']) are given to us and all we have to do is notice. I've been enjoying the robins here in Vancouver, Canada too!! Well, creative hugs to you, Norma
