We have spent the last few beautiful days raking
leaves and burning them. After raking I found
these spring flowers getting ready to bloom. The
first two pictures of daffodils and the last one is
one of my hyacinth getting ready to bloom. Now
I know spring will soon be here.

Special people are on my mind
each year on Valentine's Day, the
exceptional ones who mean to me
more than I can say. I respect and
admire you, and I just want you to
know you've made a difference in my
life and I want to tell you so.
~Joanna Fuchs~

This poem says exactly what I would
say. Wishing my husband, children,
grandchildren, great grandchildren, relatives,
and friends a very Happy Valentine's Day.
Have a blessed day. Madeline

It was a nice day here in central Alabama it got up to
50 degrees. My husband and I decided to take a ride
down to see his sister who is in the rehab place after
she broke her hip. She is the one I crocheted the afghan
for, and I am glad to report she really did like it. She had
to put it over her lap to show it off when we took her out
of her room down to the day room so we could talk and
not distrub her roommate. In all we had a good visit.
After we left there we went to visit our daughter who
lives not far from the rehab place. All in all it was a very
nice day for us. Hope where you are it was a good day
for you also.

Every flower has its season. For sadness
and joy there is a reason. Love and peace
will take to wing, if only you believe prayer
changes things.

I found this little poem on a precious
moments plaque. Have a blessed day.

We got more snow last night a little over 2 inches.
It is a very pretty snow fall. I for enjoyed it and
was glad when I woke up this morning and saw
that the roads were clear and I was able to go
to my doctors appointment. I made it but my
doctor was running late so the nurse did my blood
test and the doctor will let me know this afternoon.
I take blood thinning medicine and have to have
my blood checked every month.

On these cold winter days having to stay in doors
I have crocheted another afghan. This one is for my
sister-in-law, who is in a rehab hospital after falling
and breaking her hip. She is having to use a
wheelchair and I thought she would like this to cover
up with. It is done in the color of orchid and is soft.
I am now in the process of crocheting another one
for my other sister-in-law.

"Freezing cold winds, biting chills, and
white snow fluffed hills. Valentine's
day, oh how gay! President's day is
coming our way. February, sweet and
small, greatest month of all."
