Journaling Light


The cold winds blow
and though it may not officially
be winter,
it's freezing
so I am keeping sunshine,
 light, and summer
eternally in my heart.

I know I'm a happy January Baby and all...
but I love to feel sun on my skin
and to walk in flip flops.

Keep layers in journals, I say,
not in blankets and clothing!

It was one year ago today
that my Mom took an ambulance
to the hospital
for seven months of worry.
I am so GRATEFUL
that Mom is back in her own home
and doing well...

Your thoughts and prayers for those long months
helped.
Thank you, friends.
Thank you again.

Love,
~kath

Blessings for you and your mom. Thankfully she is doing so much better. I have lots of layers on as it is bitterly cold here with snow and ice everywhere. "Cheery Not Dreary" is my mantra for this winter. I am doing my best as I am a summer girl too. December Delights Dear...

Oh, I'd pop some sunshine in an envelope for you if I could, Kathy :) We're set to exceed 100F next week. It's just wrong for Christmas!

Happy you have the gratitude sunshine beamin on the inside...we love the the happy ending of your mom's story...and you can always visit me here in florida if you need sunshine...I've been flip flopping my way through winter. Apparently, the north winds decided to skip us.
