Disney’s cartoon movie, Finding Nemo, came out in 2003 and fans have been happily quoting from it ever since. Some of the flick’s more memorable lines are:
- I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my Squishy.
- He touched the butt.
- Hey. You guys made me ink.
- I didn’t come this far to be breakfast.
- Well, you can’t never let anything happen to him. Then nothing would ever happen to him. Not much fun for little Harpo.
- I’m H2O intolerant.
- Just keep swimming.
When the northeastern United States was hit by Snowstorm Nemo this past Friday, the last quote seemed especially fitting to many. Life often gives us no choice other than to plod forward through the tough times. Builds character, right?
I grew up in the Adirondacks, so I’m not frightened by a little snow, or even a lot, but I have to admit the commute home in white-out conditions ranked as one of my more harrowing experiences as a driver. Once home, howevever, I was able to enjoy nature’s beauty. Old Man Winter and Jack Frost had painted everything white.
My favorite image, though, was the sight of my neighbor’s flags flying proudly.
Don’t let the storms in life get you down, there are always blessings and signs of hope ahead. Hang in there! Spring is around the corner, and you will enjoy it even more for having weathered the difficult days.
How has your winter been? If you live in the north, what are you looking forward to most when warm weather returns?
