God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

"We are driven to create at this deep wordless level of the soul because we are all fashioned in the image of a God who is an Artist." - Michael Card, Scribbling in the Sand.

Another day another dollar. Today was back to work day after being off since December 21st. It’s so hard to get back in the swing of things. I didn’t have any trouble getting up I woke up and 4:30 and couldn’t get back to sleep.

Bandit cat wasn’t to happy with me when I made him go out at 7:00 this morning into the howling wind and snow. We had about 3 inches of snow and nasty winds with wind chill around 5 degrees this morning. He’s been spoiled while I’ve been off going out to potty and coming right back in and curling up in the rocker. He likes living the life of the pampered king.

I have to run home tonight and get another layout done for the Big Picture class…and then I need to put the flannel sheets on my bed. I should have done it while I was off but I enjoyed doing as little as possible.

I do want to thank everyone that took part in the crop at LPS on New Years it was so fun talking to all of you! And to thank Shellye and the rest of the gals for all the kindness and support I’ve had for the last year and ½ on the board. I love you gals and will never be able to tell you how special you are all to me.

Remember everyone the LPS crop is in April we get to start looking forward to that very soon! So start saving the pennies! I can’t wait to see everyone and Michelle if you can get there please please come! I want to see my sis…otherwise I will try to get out sometime this summer or fall.

I hope everyone is enjoying their back to routine times!

Love and hugs,
