Spring is just around the corner..... ?

Peeking out the window it is difficult to remember that just two days ago I was outside picking up the many, many twigs and branches, admiring the ground where grass used to be, knowing that in just another day the remaining pile of snow from plowing the drive would soon be gone... and then the Michigan weather struck again.  I hope the ice doesn't kill the buds!  Hubby kept telling me not to get too excited, there would be more snow coming out way.  (One would think after three years I would be getting the hang of this weather!)   I just didn't want to hear it.  Nor did I want to tell him, "dear, you were right!"   But I did!   And it really didn't hurt too terribly bad. Tehehe

At least the inside is looking like springtime.  Just tucked the winter snowman dishes away yesterday and brought out the sunflowers.  So I'll just keep my "rose colored" glasses on for a few more weeks until spring really DOES arrive!

Happy Wednesday everyone!!

Do you have a song that brings uncontrollable tears?

I love music, have the radio/stereo/music on television most of the time.   Headphones when mowing in the summer, IPod when working in the yard.  All types of music and flavors.  Music that reminds me of days gone by, high school events, the first love, songs that remind me of family members long gone...but the one song to which I have no emotional ties and absolutely just pulls at my heart strings,and I cannot control the tears, "In The Arms of the Angels".  

Do you have such a song?  What is it about certain songs that do this to us?
