Winter Storm Warning

Yep.  On May 12.  Winter Storm Warning.  It snowed on me on Saturday during my run.  But that was a little flurry, this is expected to be a big old snow.  Oh, what will become of my rose bushes and lilacs?  The little rose bush I planted last spring has eleven (11) buds on it.  

I had the best Mother's Day yesterday.  All three of my children were here.  We hung out almost all day - even though two of them got their dad quite angry by not being at his house.  I got to hear my two daughters giggle together until it got on my nerves.  But it was a wonderful thing - I don't think they have laughed together for several years.  

I am going to head out of here and get a quick run in.  Then I will quickly get ready for work.  Today could be a big day and I want to be ready for it.  

Life sure is good, if you just hang on when it isn't.  Just hang on.

"Just hang on" is sometimes the best message we can hear. I am so glad you had a wonderful day with your children!

The Victoria & Albert Museum in England has an current exhibit featuring items from WWII. There is a poster which was issued by the Ministry of Information in 1939. The poster reads:
Stay Calm and Carry On

The V&A online gift shop offers a few items printed with this motto. Sounds like a good message for folks in recovery, doesn't it?

ahhh giggling girls...can't live with it...can't live without it.
If it were to snow here right now, the front page of the newspaper would say "RUN-IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD!"
Enjoy your day little Swiss Chard.

Enjoy the snow. It sounds nice to me. I would like to be snowbound and reading a book.

I am glad that you had a good mother's day. I got to speak with my Mom for about an hour. She lives in Sacramento so I only get to see her maybe once or twice a year. But we had a really good conversation. It is so nice to have a relationship with my mom now. I used to take her for granted so much. I also told her that when I get out of the Army I am planning on moving to Sacramento to be close to the family. She was so happy. And I can't wait. I hope you have a good day at work. Take care.
