    1. I’m thinking this may ring particularly true for those such as you who have recently been through some very trying times. Hopefully, the depths of the snow that buried are beginning to give way! 🙂


      1. We really don’t have much snow anymore, Mary, but it is the physical and mental grasping, due to the extreme fatigue that so many, myself included, are now experiencing. Hopefully soon I will feel more like myself. Those trying times kicked my butt. (((HUGS))) Amy


      2. You will! Keep on cheering others with your beautiful photos, and in so doing, enjoy that “warm glow’ of internal satisfaction that comes with the simple act of making others feel good.
