Goodbye January


January has been a long month, a cold month, a sleepy month.  It's a January state of mind I've been in.

As I look back on January, I realize this surely has been a month to count my blessings.

Keep positive....

Keep smiling...

Remember the good moments... 

   ice skating; knitting, hiking in the snowy woods; 
       happy birthday's to Alice Jane, Lily, and Jeannie too.

   mom slowly recovering;
       and dad slowly recovering because mom is slowly recovering.

   learning to crochet flowers;
       saturday morning breakfast club;
           football parties (go Steelers!).

   time spent with family and friends; 
      time spent with God.  

"Bare branches of each tree
on this chilly January morn
look so cold so forlorn.
Gray skies dip ever so low
left from yesterday's dusting of snow.
Yet in the heart of each tree
waiting for each who wait to see
new life as warm sun and breeze will blow,
like magic, unlock springs sap to flow,
buds, new leaves, then blooms will grow."
  ~Nelda Hartmann, January Morn

RIP Nonna and Beth, you will be missed.  Now it will always be spring.
