WM Message

When the weather finally begins to turn it is usually after the period of uncertainty and strife known as March. In March we begin hopeful and delighted to hear the birds sing of springtime, only to be caught entirely off guard with that last snowfall. March is a month which always reminds me of the difficulty of change. There is always a period of discomfort and unfamiliarity as we shrug off what we’ve known striving toward something better. But just as the birds sing every day, if you are going through a change it is important to remember what good may come out of it and not become too discouraged. Even when it starts to get warmer then immediately freezes over again, listen for that part of you hopeful for a brighter future and keep moving forward. Soon enough March is finished, and April arrives with its bright colors and warmth. There are still the occasional showers, but when a change is ultimately positive the sun will continue to get brighter.

Fraternally, Tyler D. Barto, WM
