Happy

Heavenly Father knew that I could not be in Ohio when Laila passed away.  While some days I wish more than anything just to jump on a plane and go visit my friends, I groan just thinking about the nasty weather they are experiencing.  Two winters was too much for me, which of course you know from reading my blog.  Honestly, I need the sun.  I can't imagine the gloom my heart would feel if I were dealing with her death on top of the cold, dreary weather of Ohio.

I feel like they ought to change the name of Vitamin D to Vitamin Happiness.  I have heard that Colorado Springs gets snow in Feb., April, and May so I'm gearing up for it.  In the meantime, I am loving this wonderful weather.  I could not ask for a better day today.

It makes me miss Oklahoma actually, because this kind of weather is actually similar to Oklahoma's winters.  Of course once the snow comes it will be quite different from Oklahoma.

Today is one of those days where I feel like I'm drinking in happiness--like it's seeping into all the parts of my body and it is partly due to the weather.




And partly due to these cutie patooties.

I'm happy you're happy! That makes ME happy! Contagious isn't it?
And I don't miss Ohio weather either. Not one bit!

Oh, it looks like they are all so happy. So do you jump on the tramp, too? That would make me happy as well.

Mike and Adrianne said...

Mom, yes. I jump on the tramp as well. The boys love me to get on with them.

:O)Yes, it's dreary here, but I wish you were here. :O) Yep, that was the dress you gave me. I love it! I would wear it daily if I could.

This is the time for you to be in OHIO. The weather has not been bad. It is miraculous this year. Nice and warm.....Jackets more than coats. WE have only had 1 skiff of snow and typical temps are in the 40's. I LOVE IT. I am glad CO is experiencing nice weather. It makes such a difference. And the boys would HATE not being on that trampoline if it were covered in snow!

This is EXACTLY how I feel about sun. My girls love the trampoline pictures.
