Hopeful Monday

Aren't they gorgeous? Yet another sign that spring has almost sprung. The temps have been in the 70's, March winds have been blowing some. Glorious weather. The robins were out in full force the other day.
Things have, somewhat settled down here. Thankfully, dh and I didn't get the flu, ds is better, except for a bit of a cough still.
Dh and the dr are trying to get his meds regulated. He seems to be doing better.
Thank you for your prayers and encouragement. Sorry I havent' been around to comment individually.
I've heard so much bad news this past week. It can really start to wear on you after awhile.
Somethings I just don't understand, they just plain make no sense at all.
I'm so thankful that I have a future and a hope. It's God's promise to me.

So, I'm trying to look at the things that are good, lovely, of a kind report, things that uplift and encourage, not drag me down and grind me under.
I choose to not give in, not give up, not give out.

Another sign of hope~~ds came in the other day, got his guitar out and started playing. Oh! what a thrill that was to my soul! He hasnt' picked up his guitar all winter. He has such great talent. I know he has so much other stuff taking over his time and his thoughts.

Well, enough rambling.
~~til later

Enjoy the music! And please believe things will get better--I do even when I feel my days are worst than ever--I have to keep that hope alive!

I'm envious of your warm weather and bright daffodils. All we have here are about three inches of green poking through the soil.
It's encouraging to see your flowers.

I'm sure it's quite a treat to hear him play. What a great talent to have and to bless others with. :)

Oh, Miss Patty....

I'm so happy that you're able to see the positive. You're so blessed and you choose to see it.
I'm praying that you'll be hearing happier news more often.

Many Blessings, Miss Patty,
