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
I had the pleasure of going to a friends' farm the other afternoon and enjoying the sunshine. It was such a nice break from my normal day of offices, phones, and hospital hallways. I wore flipflops and jeans, soaked in the sunshine and took pictures of everything. My friend was transplanting daffodils and I was riding shotgun. At the time, it was my version of heaven.
