I Hope Spring Marches In

Snow on the mountain, 
Chill in the air.  
Looking for Spring. 
She ain't anywhere!
I've been hiding behind my poetry since winter keeps me in.  She wraps her icy fingers around me. I don't want to go outside or very far from the fire that warms me.

There are many things I could do or should do but I sit and crochet.  I think that is my winter sport.  I deliver my sister's mail and quickly come inside again.

For those who have really suffered through horrendous winters this year and still are, I am sorry.  I'm a wimp when it comes to cold.

We remain a personal care facility.  Maria still cannot walk but will have her screws removed from her infected foot next week.  We just go from there.  I know she is as anxious to continue her life as we are for her to heal.  Sadly, the man who caused the accident had no insurance so there is nothing to be done for her lost wages, car, and health.  She will have to start over again.  We all know that is difficult.  This has been a personal, medical and financial strain for all of us. May she heal quickly.

Snow again although the weather man said no.  Not too deep but enough inches to be bothersome,   I know it will melt but my patience is wearing thin.  Again to those who have REAL snow, I apologize.

I have noticed a migration to Word Press.  Is there something I need to know?  Where is the best place to blog and should I pay for it?  I'm in the dark here, please share.

I wish you warmth, good health, joy and a blessed Sunday.

springtime wishes coming your way and melting of the snow day by day...
i love blogger, MOST of the time. wordpress i have never used, but i do know sometimes it is aggravating for me to comment because it doesn't save my info and i had to add it all.

I hope for spring soon to the nature here is telling me spring is in the air . I am sorry to hear about Maria struggling either way that idiot that hit them should still have to pay up regardless of no insurance I do hope all goes well for her . I haven't heard anything as to why some are going to word press I use Windows Live Writer to do my blog posts it is a program I got put in my computer years ago and I use Firefox for my browser so I have no idea maybe it is just a trend that is going on . It is mild yet damp and snowy here today but the rest of the week is to warm up and the weather is to improve for us and lots of sunshine . Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !

Hi Gail
Ugg . . . winter . . .roll on the better weather and I shall be delighted to come out of hibernation.

Very sorry to see about Maria and hope she recovers soon. It is so common for people causing accidents with no insurance ~ something must be done about that.

I can't understand anyone wanting to change to Wordpress ~ I don't think it is as good as Blogger but Blogger needs to be improved . . . :)
Wishing you well . . . Eddie :)

Continued prayers for your daughter. I hate the word 'sue,' but it's a shame that guy doesn't have to pay anything.
I haven't noticed a migration. No way I'd leave Blogger. I'd lose all my followers and the GFC widget.

I hope the Dr. can give hope for healing and a good future. Hope is the one emotion/trust no one should never lose.

No snow. We are having some rain!

No, haven't notice a migration. I will stay with blogger until the cows come home. Since we have no cows....

I know several on Word Press who are having a lot of problems. I have considered changing, when Blogger messes up, but am glad I stayed with Blogger. They all have issues at times.

My prayers are with you and your family, as you know. My heart goes out to daughter with the ankle problems. I went through similar issues for two years. Bless her heart.

And yours.

Hopefully the removal of the screws will bring her some relief and progress. It is awful that you have no recourse with the fellow that caused the accident.
I love snow but that is probably because I spent 50 years in Florida cooking my brains out in the heat. We got a really pretty one yesterday but it is gone today.

Sandy said...

Gail,

Were all ready for the snow to leave and the warmer temperatures to arrive.

I haven't seen people leaving blogger for word press.

I pray Maria's foot heals, and the pain goes away. It's a shame people are aloud to drive without insurance, they need to be totally accountable for their actions.

Well, March is here so hopefully Spring is right around the corner.
Here's wishing you some sunshine and warmer weather.
Connie :)

I'm a blogger girl and probably always will be. I've heard many complain about WordPress too. I'm hoping and a wishing for spring, and I mean a real spring too, for all of us! Thinking happy thoughts for you all, for the healing and the mending of everything!

I hope your guest knows how blessed she is to have an angel like you sweetie.

Yep...Lasagna weather here. Foot of snow, ice, more snow, ice, etc...you get the picture. Not and never will be a snow bunny!!! Bring on spring. :o)

Stay cozy precious friend and have a greatly blessed week.

Sending healing thoughts your way, I know it has been a tough time for you all. I hope she will have some mobility after the screws are taken out....it is hard to learn to walk again.
I don't like the cold either but still go out with the dog to play most days.
Crochet on...seems to be a long winter for sure:)

Blogger has a few problems on and off but it is free....As a 'Blogger' blogger (lol) I find that I am unable to comment on wordpress blogs. I have no idea why...it just won't accept me as a commenter. It's a purely selfish request, but, please don't go to Wordpress.

Beachanny said...

Glad to read your poem. Sorry about your sister. We even have snow and rain (much needed) here in Texas. They say we're going to have a 40 year drought but thank heaven not just yet. Praying for healing and a warmer spring for you and for us all. Poetry and crochet is comforting. I've been yearning to hunt up my hooks lately..no new babies in my life and nothing to spur me on that front...maybe a new dresser scarf. I love doing lace crochet. Thank you.
