Unexpectedly Pleasant Surprises

If you live in the upper midwest you have been experiencing an unexpectedly pleasant surprise. In a typical March we may have an occasional day in the 60’s or even the 70’s, but we never have the extended above average temperatures that we have had over more than the last week.

Perennials are already blooming. People are eating dinner al fresco. Kids are out on their bikes and skateboards. Shorts and t-shirts are as common as a summer day.

There is something about unexpectedly pleasant surprises that bring

  • a new outlook
  • a change in attitude
  • a different view
  • a favorable demeanor
