Share the Love ~ February

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. John 13:35 KJV

Good morning, reader! Can you believe we are closing February? I feel as if I just unrolled the mat! The past two weeks have been perfect. The temps have been in the 80s during the day with high 60s at night. but I’m sure it won’t last. We are in for another cold stretch before spring decides to stay.

Today, I’m with Sandra Ardoin on her blog talking about courage. I would love to see you there. Come by and tell me what you’re doing this year to get out of your comfort zone and grow your courage. See you there!

Meanwhile, enjoy this month’s Share the Love.
