Can you see those little yellow circles amid the ground? Those, I am happy to report, are my first dandelion sighting of this Spring! And I know I have been unbearably happy lately with this idea of Spring happening, but this is a very exciting day. I guess we all have to put up with me being horribly and morbidly depressed during winter, it is only fair that I balance with horribly, unbearable cheeriness in the Spring. Maybe by summer I'll be even keeled and not annoy anyone. Or at least annoy them less.
I was so excited to hear another amazing thing that the New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern did. That woman. Wow. She decided to introduce a country wide plastic bag ban. This after banning assault rifles. The kindness and love of life that this imparts makes me so happy. It inspires me to do my best with the small portion of the world I have control of.
And it makes me even more excited to see the earth return to life after winter. Oh you little dandelions you just make my day so nice. Like little sunshine heads poking through the ground.
Good news is out there. You go Jacinda Ardern. I am so impressed with you. If you inspire me, maybe you inspire lots of other people and the amazing difference you make will spread. Like dandelions with bright yellow spots over a lawn they aren't supposed to be on. Not everyone will like it, but there is good in these things I think.
And it's FRIDAY! Let's play even if it's -3 this morning. It's ok.
