Who Lost their Yellow Balloon this Winter?

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

                                                                                                                                  Doug Larson

The days are getting longer, snow is melting fast, and yes, this is the time of year when walking anywhere is a bit like an obstacle course, dodging slushy snow and puddles, and not walking too close to the street so you don’t get drenched by a passing car.  Yet, spring is my favourite time of year!

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.
