Did I mention it's cold.

-3 degrees.

I got up early this morning to take my Sister and Brother-in-Law to the airport and I *almost* jumped in one of their suitcases.

They're flying back to San Diego. Of all the cruel, cruel places they could be going.

Grumble, grumble.

I know two people who biffed it bad just yesterday on the ice and snow. One took a trip to the ER and the other will be sore for many days.

On my way home from the airport, as I was entering our neighborhood, I saw a blind woman walking down the street, presumably to the bus stop. She climbed over the snow berm into the street and crossed the slick ice, back over another berm and down the icy sidewalk.

She was smiling and singing.

Lesson 101 at 6:00am today:

Count your blessings, name them one by one. Thank the One who gives you those blessings.

And then maybe you will smile.

Even if your teeth are chattering.

Amen Jenny! I love the visual of your neighbor; exactly what I needed. I can't see what's out there yet, but I know I'm blessed to be in it. Happy New Year!

Blessings, Carolynn
