Maybe I’m over-dramatizing it with the illustration above, but no one is happier than me to turn the page on January and see progression in the year. February isn’t any great shakes, but it is better than the most dismal month of the year.

As if to make its point, there were thunderstorms, lightning, and rain last night. But I have awakened to clear skies and the prospect today—and the year ahead—to brighter days and warmer weather.

I have two other posts prepared, but my elation is such that I feel compelled to celebrate with this post today. I hope that you, too, have something besides Superbowl Sunday to look forward to.

But if you don’t, that’s good enough.

    CNN)—A 3-year-old boy shot his father and pregnant mother over the weekend inside a hotel room in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

    Police say the boy removed a handgun from his mother’s purse Saturday and fired one shot, striking his father in the lower backside.

    The bullet apparently exited through the father’s hip and hit the mother in the right shoulder. She is eight months pregnant, said Officer Simon Drobik of the Albuquerque Police Department.

    The father was treated and released from the hospital while the mother was hospitalized in stable condition. The condition of her unborn child is unknown.

    The boy and his 2-year-old sister, who was also in the hotel room, are under the care of the Children’s Youth and Families department. They were not injured in the incident.

    Drobik says the case has been sent to Albuquerque District Attorney’s Office, which will determine whether the parents will be charged with criminal negligence.

    Police did not identify the family.
