Spring Daze

Not quite what you were thinking when you read spring daze? Well this is a beautiful downed tree we saw when we were traveling this past summer in Yellowstone. But this was so beautiful to us. It's a shame it had to die, but it did leave beauty. Look how intricate the root system is.

My grandson, Kenneth has been hospitalized for a few days now, last eve he seemed so much better, should be coming home over the weekend and I can go back home. Dau#1 is missing me quite a bit, but she understands I am where I should be right now.

Have been quite reflective this am, so quiet here. We are so blessed as a nation! Even on some of our worst days, in America, we are blessed!
Look at Japan! they have had 2 horrific weather events, loss of many lives, now are looking at a nuclear event! One might say they have been there before, but why should they have to be? I can't answer that question!
Look at Libya and the rest of the Middle East-will their governing bodies ever stop fighting? More loss of life, homes demolished. Another horrible disaster!
What can we do? Pray, count our blessings and give as we are able to the folks of these disasters, afterall we are all part of the human race. We Must run that race as we are able & blessed!

I hope your grandson comes home this weekend. That would be a wonderful thing.

The world always seems to be in such turmoil. Today is no different than a 100 years ago. Wars and more wars. As for the middle east? I doubt there will ever be peace there.

Have a terrific day and weekend ahead. :)

I love the twisting roots of that downed tree.

I guess we just hear about all the difficult situations in the world faster these days.

oh my gosh, I hope your grandson is ok, visits to the hospital for anything other than giving birth are horrible.

I am taking your positive thinking and using its energy : )

So sorry to hear your grandson is in the hospital, and hope he is back home soon. Counting ones blessings and helping others when we can is good advice.

I am so sorry your grandson has been ill. I hope he's better by now.

... and yes, I agree: it's critical to always count our blessings. It's so easy to get caught up in the annoyances, but really, there are blessings all around. Always.
