There was an orb in the sky today...could it be a sun?
I had hoped for a day off today but that wasn't to be...Dakotah bounded into my room saying "time to get up, Gramma"...I hoped I was dreaming but had a feeling I wasn't...and sure enough they were here... As I had slept all evening last night and only got up briefly to shower before going to bed I wasn't feeling too bad despite the early hour. I managed to get Jaime down for a nap about 11 and discovered it was not raining. So I headed outside and picked up litter that was previously snow covered and gathered bottles for the depot and other stimulating things while doing a million or so loads of laundry...one of which was my bedding so now I am looking forward to my clean bed. Jaime entertained me by pulling ornaments off the tree for a good part of the day. I think it is going to have to be put away soon as the constant activity of babysitting the tree is starting to get to me. Dakotah is now going to be going to preschool 3 days a week. Ballet is on hold for a bit, possibly until spring as I don't want the stress of having to get across town in snow or wind or torrential rain. preschool is only a block away so we can get there pretty much all of the time. Later this afternoon something was shining in the window..it was so bright and foreign, I debated finding some dark glasses...as I tip toed to the window to investigate, I couldn't help smiling...it was really, truly the sun...gosh it has been a long time. Of course about the same time hurricane force winds commenced but it was still so nice to see the sun for a change. That wind is very cold and feels like it is from the north...no snow in the forecast but it sure feels snowish...
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!
