Spread the Joy
The sun is shining today but
just a couple of days ago
The snow started at 3:30
Our deck at 6:30.
It was beautiful.
The next day.
Icicles dripping from the eaves sounded like rain.
I try to take joy in the snow and I do love it.
But I prefer the Joy that comes from seeing the sunshine.

Feeling........lazy since it is cold outside and snow is on the way again.
Thinking.............sometimes I feel selfish enjoying my free time and doing mostly just what I want to do.
I know where that comes from.
I was taught by my religious upbringing that a life without doing for others is useless.
Whoa, you say.
I cannot subscribe to that now at my advancing age. I must realize a happy medium is the ideal.
We have raised 6 children and we have both worked up to age 70.
I continue to learn.
Enjoy art, reading and a number of other things.
I am worn out by doing, doing, doing outside my home.
I want to be home.
But, I have one project that I give of my time and talent for others.
That will have to do.
