Longfellow said, "Into each life, some rain must fall." But you never expect that rain to be akin to standing under a raging waterfall during spring runoff. Sheesh!! So while that rain is doing its best to beat me down, I do my best the things for which I'm thankful.

I am thankful for:

  • house, car, and job (tho' the job is up in the air right now)
  • DH, who is a moutainous, unmoving rock of stability
  • my sister, who is my BFF and always ready to have my back
  • having a natural green thumb
  • my uncanny knack for matching colors
  • the ability to cook with no recipe and it always turns out tasty
  • my parents being strict when I was growing up, teaching values and morals, and having expectations
  • SISU - it's what keeps me putting one foot in front of the other. Even when I'm bogged down waist deep.

DPW, unless there was a LOT of ice on the lake, it is never too cold for me. LOL

Glad to hear your aunt is still here and that SO is back to "normal".
