Ahhh, There is Hope…

Last night I opened the door to step outside, and was hit with a wave of hope. Who would have thought that 34 degrees would feel like a heat wave? The night sky was clear, with a gleaming moon and twinkling stars. And for a moment, I felt ‘hope’ in my heart.

Hope for flowers budding, and grass greening.
Hope for evenings outside in the lawn chair.
Hope for shorts and flip-flops.
Hope for that golden glow of sun tanned skin.
Hope for inspiration to exercise and lose this winter weight.
Hope for supper on the grill.

And this morning, I stepped outside and heard birds singing.  Ahhh.  Hope.
Hope that all things can change.
Hope that everyday is a new day.                                                                                                     Hope that Spring is near.

Hope…that Punxatawney Phil called it right!

About 49andcounting

Hi! I'm a mom, wife, grammy, sister, friend at that ALMOST 50 age!! (Okay, since I started this a few years ago...well, add a bit to 49andcounting!) How the heck did I get here so fast?!? I love, love, love- my girls, antiques, rural America, history, Jesus, junkin,the lake and my Big Boy...not particularly in that order. It's about time I change this profile a bit. After a year or living in our 5th wheel in beautiful Pennsylvania, My Big Boy and I are back to the Kansas Prairies. And there's just nothing like "Home Sweet Home". Hitting the Big 50 has its own unique, well...let's say...blessings :) So come along, laugh with me...cry with me...praise God with me...and let's do this 49andcounting thing, together!
