In December we experienced so much rain we almost needed to build an Ark and the temperatures were unseasonably warmer than usual. Alas that has now changed but one night late last month my son came home from work and called me to come outside as something was perched on the electrical wires outside our sundeck...or maybe rain deck at that time! I have never seen an owl in our neighborhood before and I don't think I had ever seen one this close before! He sat on that wire in the torrential rain for the longest time.
Unfortunately January is bringing us frigid cold temperatures, the weatherman on the news says this is the coldest we will have been in many years over the next few days. With the wind chill factor, they say we could be at -20 C. tonight and we have had that dreaded "S" word come down a few times...it feels like we have moved to the Arctic! That song "Baby It's Cold Outside" keeps going through my head!
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!
