ALWAYS A SILVER LINING.....

I am here to tell you, friends, that I am tired of winter. I want it to be on its merry way. I am sure somewhere in the world there are people anxiously awaiting its arrival. Sure, I have enjoyed looking at the beautiful snow in your pictures, I've enjoyed having a chance to wear my sweaters, and boots, I have even enjoyed warming up by the fire, sipping hot chocolate or spiced tea. But, enough is enough. This weather is so hard on my joints, I ache all the time, and since my immunity is compromised, I catch everything that comes around. Now, I realize that God has this season thing all worked out for the good of the whole universe, and I have no illusions that He will make concessions just for this weary, freezing, cold lady in South AL. But, I just need the sunshine to function at my optimum level. Come soon, spring, come soon!

I did find one thing that is good about winter.........

And that silver lining....it's best when wrapped around a delicious chocolate bar!

I can't wait for Spring and Summer too!

Cute cartoon...my chocolate never lasted long enough to melt though.

Hugs!

I love it! Just so happens I had a package of chocolate covered pretzels in my car today and ...what a mess! It was quite warm here today.

I'm praying for you tonight. I have noticed the days are definitely getting longer and the time changes this next weekend. I'm with you... I am SO sick of Winter. I try not to be jealous of my girlfriends in the south. Do you hear me, y'all?

I just heard yesterday it is impossible to get an overabundance of the sun... or should I say, son! I love it!
Love,
Angie xoxo

I am all about Spring and Fall, but I really enjoy the winter too. I'm not so wild about the 100 temps of summer though...UGH! Hopefully some warmer weather will be here soon...I'm ready for it too, no doubt.

Amen! Preach it, girl! No melty car chocolate is definitely a winter perk...though I would happily bring it inside if the sun would make it all warm again.
