Someone keeps shaking the snow globe.
While we are not socked in with huge snowfalls like our neighbors to the north, snow and frigid winter temperatures here in our neck of the woods tend to make us want to go into hibernation mode.
You know it’s been cold when you go outside and think, “Wow, it feels warm out here,” and the thermometer informs you it’s 25 degrees Fahrenheit. Yes, 25 and a little sunshine felt like a heat wave.
But I’m not writing to discuss the weather. It’s winter. That’s a given. I live in an area that gets winter weather and really, I’m not complaining about that. Spring will arrive eventually.
Actually, I’m not complaining about anything. Since the arrival of our darling first grandchild, Papa and I have been filled with joy and wonder over this new little life. You might say she’s brought a little spring into our life, spring in our steps, spring in our hearts.
And even though there are an abundance of words floating around my mind that will need written down and published in Mama’s Empty Nest, I’m going on a little break. I’ll still check in to read my fellow bloggers’ posts, but I will be on hiatus from writing for a while.
Just wanted to let everyone know so no one worries that something is wrong. On the contrary, everything is right and good including the precious little missy who just woke up from a nap and her amazingly wonderful mother, my beautiful daughter.
“Be kind to all, to like many and love a few, to be needed and wanted by those we love, is certainly the nearest we can come to happiness.” ~ Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots
