Blue skies and sunshine today bring warm thoughts of spring just around winter's harsh corner. It's that time of year when those heavy winter coats become as irritating to us as the scratchy sweater that we can't wait to throw off. Both may keep you warm, but at a certain point, the irritation begins to out-way that warmth.
Thankfully, the hope of spring allows us to tolerate winter just a little longer. It's icy tentacles that reach our inner core, will freeze and thaw in cycles, until at last, it is no more.
Past years have shown us what we can expect: budding trees and fresh fragrant bloom will burst their color onto a new green pallet, covering the dull grays of winter. Neighbors will no longer disappear into their homes in a flash, but instead, pause to take in Mother Nature's beauty, and approach us with a smile and greeting.
My anticipation is palpable today. I couldn't wait to share that same feeling with others, and have decided to also share news of my upcoming Spring Special on my book, Shards of Trust. Beginning March 1st through the end of April, I will have a $2 off coupon promotion. Go to www.makoontz.com/shards-of-trust, click on the "BookShop" link under "Paperback," and remember to enter code SPRING18 at checkout to receive the discount.
I realize that this is still weeks away, but like spring, I wanted to give you one more thing to look forward to, because if you're like me, it is always the right season to get comfortable and read a new book.
