Violets

You guys are all too nice with your well wishes and commiseration and good advice.  And sometimes one of you doesn't even know it but you send me some inspiration to brighten my day. 

My thoughts tonight are lifted by this quote: 

"Surely as cometh the Winter, I know There are Spring violets under the snow.Robert H. Newell

And a little bird tells me that there's a cross stitch chart out there that says this, too.

  4. Hold on...it's coming! I promise.

    I noticed Friday that it wasn't dark at 6pm. I was really happy to see that!

  7. I hope the drama has come to a solution and that you feel better.
    The quote is just what I need too, right now. Can't stand anymore snow. But you shouldn't have shown the chart, that beautiful chart. Now I have to add it to my wishlist, lol.
