Dear Mr. Groundhog,
I never really knew if you are just the herald of the good or bad news that comes on February 2nd or if you really have anything to do with the decision as to when exactly Spring arrives...you know, like you have a say in the matter.
So, anyways, this is why I am writing to you today. If you have any pull whatsoever as to whether Spring comes early, I respectfully request that you take into consideration those like me who are tired of winter. Now, I know we cannot complain here in the south because at least we have not been covered with 30+ inches of snow like our northern neighbors, but it's been drab and gray this winter...really drab and gray. So, if it means staying out a little longer today and facing your fears by facing your shadow, please man up and do it just for me. We all have to face our fears sometimes, and a shadow (I mean, in the realm of scary things in life) is not such a scary thing. It just means you're there and you are present and you take up space on Planet Earth. To have a shadow at all is to mean there is sunlight, and that, my friend, is a VERY GOOD THING. It is actually cloudy where I live right now so maybe that's a good thing and you won't have to deal with seeing your shadow at all and be scared back into your burrow or your hole or your cave or your nest or wherever it is that cute little groundhogs live. FOR. SIX. MORE. WEEKS. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease, no!
Thanks for anything and everything you are able to do...
Sincerely and with my utmost gratitude,
So Ready for Spring
