Ordinary to Extraordinary

We are often faced with challenging situations that dare to crumble the footing beneath our feet.  We must stand tall and hold on and know that the earth beneath our feet will carry us although at times it can be a bit rough.

I have had many joys the past week, a gorgeous owl that graced our tree, watching the horses play in the field now that the weather is warmer (it has been hovering around 40), the video tape that my youngest Daughter made for us for Valentines, the selection of poetry that my oldest Daughter wrote for each us as the sun rose this morning and she read with pride, reading in the languishing light of the evening, the joy of simply being and simply knowing:


It does not mean to be in a place
where there is no noise, trouble
or hard work.  It means to be in
the midst of all these things and still
Be calm in your heart

Thank you Cindy, always thinking of you these past 18 days

May your days ahead provide you with a bit of challenge and a lot of love - Happy Valentines day!
