That was the theme of this ATC swap I joined a few weeks ago! The host is located back East and was dreading the continued cold, snowy days! She asked us to create a cheery, bright ATC that depicted Sun or Summer! This was my take on the theme.
It's funny how several weeks into Spring we are still experiencing cold and snow! The Front Range is expected to receive yet another snowstorm staring tomorrow! Maybe as much as a foot they say! Well since April is considered the 3rd snowiest month, I suppose we shouldn't be surprised, but when we've had days in the 70's already, it does seem a bit "old"! Everyone I know is ready for the nice warm (consistent) temperatures with RAIN not SNOW!!!
I had both good and bad news today. First the good. My dear friend from HS (Kathy) emailed me to tell she is not only married, she's adopting AND she is pregnant! I didn't realize how long it's been since we last talked!! I thought I had seen her last year, but apparently it must have been 2006 since she's been married since then! It was a really nice surprise and I wish her all the luck! 2 kids at 41 will be a challenge, but as a flight for life nurse, I know she is well up to it! The sad news came from another friend, Patti who lost her father today. We do not know any of the details yet, but my prayers and thoughts go out to her as she finds her way home to Michigan from Florida and is comforted by her family. Her motto is LIFE and I hope that she can gain strength from it as she struggles through these next few days.
Live Life... you never know when it will be gone.
