Memorable Quotes

Though we can never leave life without experiencing some measure of loss, grief, and pain, misery is optional--as is happiness.

Beverly Campbell

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me."

Oh, what a beautiful morning! We've had snow all week and woke up this morning to freezing rain. While freezing rain can be extremely miserable (downed power lines) it is also one of the most incredible things to see. Unfortunately it isn't sunny this morning or we would be in a sparkly wonderland. I love this wonderful earth that we live on with all its seasons. Enjoy today. Every day is a blessing.

OK...I couldn't talk about it without sharing so I went outside and took some pictures.

Looking north up our street

Santa might have a problem with this roof!

Love my ginko trees!
(There are three along the front of our yard.)

My beautiful fir tree on the corner will never be the same.

Obviously we didn't have church this morning!

This blogging can be addictive! I'm having way too much fun!

Looking at the photo of your car window makes me LOVE living in San Diego just a lil bit more. I forgot what it's like having ice on a windshield.
