As we said farewell to the old year, snow began to fall


We awoke on New Year's day to 10 1/2 inches of snow on the ground.
It was a winter wonderland all over.
Just a few days later...........along came another snow.
5 1/2 inches this time.
Usually, snow in our area is light, and I like to sit on the front 
porch with a cup of coffee and enjoy watching the flakes fall down.........
well........I was not able to sit out at this time.
The wild birds were very hungry and happy to find feed.
and the little woodpecker still clung and pecked at the frozen trees.

now, snow has gone and the  past few days have been pleasant with some 
of the most beautiful sunsets. 
Usually I have new things that I want to do when the new
year comes..........but I have come to a stage in my life
that now.........I have things that I do not want to do.
I have come to realize that life is more simple and happier
when I recognize there are things I will not try to accomplish
and not to keep doing as I did in the past years. 
But one thing I will keep doing is to keep up my hope and faith as
we go into this new year. 
I hope this finds that you have had a happy beginning to your new year and that you keep hope and faith as you go forward in the days to come.
