Call from step daughter. She's having a tough time. Glad to know that she and her son are coping well with the separation of father who left over a year ago to be with another woman but now wants "sole custody". Slim chance of that thank goodness as my step daughter is doing well, both for herself and as a parent. 13 year old grandson wants nothing to do with the father who had no contact or even a phone call with the son for over 14 months after the separation. Personally, I think the father's attorney is just asking for the moon in order to get better visitation rights.

We just had a final snow for the year (I look on the positive side and set plans that have at least a 50% chance of success).

A snow day which we never get in SC. I'm thankful for the time at home in peace and quiet, relaxing and planning February challenges, researching new ideas to make my home circuit closer to a reality, and I tried out some different spark videos today too.

I feel well, calm and rested. Sometimes this is just what our body needs.

Dear Lord, set my sights on You and Your great attributes. Help me to live in Your presence, dependent on Your guidance each day. In Jesus� name, Amen.

MARAGRAM and all- Glad to hear it. I'm grateful for another day to prove to myself I am worth taking stupendous care of myself so that I may spread the success and happiness around and watch it blossom. Ever notice how in the middle of a paved section of road a pretty bright yellow dandy- lion pops up healthy and strong? Clever weed who was misjudged to be unwanted peeps out to brighten our day. Next time you see one, roll your window down and hear it singing. "You are my sunshine......" emoticon Holly

Nothing about food but I see my weather man has a sense of humor - or so I hope. He began this dark day saying, "Expect warm sunshine in April 2014!" It's been gloomy here, much like the set of a vampire movie). He better be wrong. I need sun. It's directly connected to my laugh lines and funny bone. -Holly emoticon
