Sure, thanks to global warming, our winter did not begin until January. But when there are tulips in Connecticut and apple blossoms in our nation's capital ... the last thing I want is another snow storm. I am suffering from tulip envy ... as well as a now-tempered "spring fever". I need to smell the mud again before I go mad!
Halis and I have been very seriously considering moving within a year or two ... but that is for another post...
As for now, it looks like we are due to get another 5-8 inches of snow by tomorrow night. I just found this out on tonight's evening news. Prior to learning this, I had every intention of writing a lovely post about the wonderful benefits of enjoying one's cousins. It was to be a reflection on my own unique relationships to my beloved cousins as well as a discussion about Isaac's newly formed relations to his own cousins. I promise, it was going to be lovely ... pictures and all... But I just could not wrap my head around beautiful and lovely thoughts tonight.
Well, that was until I tried to crawl into bed ... and this is what I found ...
The three "men" in my life were all sharing the bed together ... looking content as can be ... and I thought some most "lovely" thoughts ... the loveliest of which was regarding how incredibly blessed I feel when I remember that I am completely surrounded by love.
JodiP.S. Thanks to Fiona for a wonderful phone conversation today. You made a gloomy day feel so much brighter. I am blessed by your friendship.
