The new stats are out and we have had snow on the ground since December 13, 2008. Apparently at the airport it was recorded that we have had 100 cm of snow so far. For the first time since 1964, dump trucks are picking up the snow in the city of Vancouver and dumping truck loads into False Creek. The worry is flooding with the thaw. The new mayor of Vancouver stated this has been a big learning experience and they will be having meetings to discuss new strategies to deal with winters like this. Apparently there is a possibility we could have several years of this type of weather...not a pleasant thought for me...I will keep buying those lottery tickets and hope for a way to leave in winter...haha...and soon another cow will fly over the moon too as that is probably a comparable thing to winning the lottery! But if one doesn't have a ticket one cannot win so I will keep trying!
To believe is to know that every day is a new beginning. It is to trust that miracles happen, and dreams really do come true. To believe is to see angels dancing among the clouds,To know the wonder of a stardust sky and the wisdom of the man in the moon. To believe is to know the value of a nurturing heart,The innocence of a child's eyes and the beauty of an aging hand,for it is through their teachings we learn to love. To believe is to find the strength and courage that lies within us, When it is time to pick up the pieces and begin again. To believe is to know we are not alone, That life is a gift and this is our time to cherish it. To believe is to know that wonderful surprises are just waiting to happen, And all our hopes and dreams are within reach. If only we believe.
I am a mother of two grown sons and gramma to 4 darling little grandchildren. When I can find the time I enjoy reading, gardening, sewing, walking, visitng friends on my computer and my doll hobby. I also enjoy travelling. I lived in Hawaii for many years and miss being there a great deal. In recent years our destination of choice has been Southern California where we always have a wonderful time and the weather is fantastic. Computers are not my strong suit, nor is technology so I am just stumbling my way through and learning as I go along. Thank you for visiting my blog!
