Ode to Winter

Don't be angry


Don't be sad


Don't sit cryin'


Over good things you've had


Well, there's a rose in a fisted glove


And the eagle flies with the dove


And if you can't be with the one you love


Love the one you're with


Love the one you're with

  1. Great advice!
    I'm trying! Even though I am bundled up in a robe on, on top of flannel jammies under a heavy blanket and still cold!

  4. Oh, how funny - and creative! Love it! No snow here in northern GA yet, but they say it's on the way for Thursday night. Just a couple of inches, but that's fine. Blessings, Becky

  5. LOVE all the great pics. This seems like a very "glass half full" message. I gotta stop complaining about the frosty snow, and get OUT and document it!!!! Er, but it is SOOO, SOOO cold here :)

  14. I try to love Winter, but I just can't. My heart belongs to my sweet Summer. I long for the day that she comes back to me. But for the meantime, I will "put up with" the one I'm with. :)
    Thanks for the great photos, though. They're beautiful!
    Have a great day. Beth.

  18. I just wanted to say "howdy". I've been reading your blog for a few weeks now and just LOVE it. Your family is precious!

    We have a farm in Texas in which we raise pastured grass-fed meats. This happens to be my 3rd year of farm life too!

    I guess I've rambled on enough here. Love your heart and love your blog!

  20. You know what's funny, for the past 11 years I have lived in south Texas where winter lasts a totally of 2 days. This year we moved and for the first time in ELEVEN years I got to experience fall...and now winter. It is gray today, down right blaaaa out there and I am loving every minute of it. Some how my internal clock says, "that's okay, it's suposed to look like that out your kitchen window." So I eat more soup, drink more coffee and wear sweaters I haven't seen in ELEVEN years. So loving the one I'm with today!
