We were truly blessed with a mild winter...it was lovely with very little snow and above freezing temperatures. That being said, the Spring is another story. We have had so much rain, so many wind storms and it is downright chilly outside and very damp. The snow hills that were bare for the Olympics now have in excess of 2 feet of new powder on them, and the mountains have announced they are extending their season longer. Glad someone is happy about this turn of events!! Meanwhile the east in Ontario where they are used to cooler temperatures at this time of year, is basking in hot weather in the upper 20's Celsius. Sure wish they would send it back to me!
All this awful weather got me thinking of warmer times. Recently I bid on (Ebay of course) and received an American Girl robe from the Hilton Hotel. The seller told me they were used as a promotion for folks staying at their hotels and going to the American Girl stores. I am not sure when this was but the robe is pretty darned cute! I just had to put it on Samantha because when I was in California in 2006 and went to the American Girl store for the very first time, I bought Samantha and brought her back to our hotel room at the Anaheim Hilton hotel. Samantha thought she would hang around in her robe and look at photos of our California trip where it was not only warm but downright hot that year!
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!
