Quote of the Day

"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome." Anne Bradstreet

I love that quote.

I now live where there is no winter, and I miss the snow & chill. The sun isn't as rewarding & remarkable, when it's there all the time.

It's a good reminder, when life is having a stormy patch.

my first four years on active duty I lived either on a semi-tropical island, or southern California.

Eventually I got so homesick for snow I made the spousal unit drive us up to Big Bear so I could lie down in some...

(and Anne Bradstreet is a favorite of mine).

LOL! I'm telling mine we have to go to Big Bear for my birthday next year!!

I've been in SoCal for 5 years now, and I'm so home sick for the snowy(200 inches)winters! :)

I love Anne Bradstreet too. :)
