Behold thou instructed many and thou has hast strengthened the weak hands. The words have upheld thee that was falling.. and thou hast strengthened the feeble knees...Job 4:3-4

Frost covered trees
After a cold freeze
Does look nice
Upon a winters image
With snow and ice
Except when you fall,
To receive the damage!
Thank God...Hurrah!
For favors big and small,
I didn't take my camera
Carrying sunflower seeds
To feed the wild birds;
Waiting in the trees...
Who all heard my words
When I screamed in alarm,
"Oh no...I sprained my arm!!!"

Poetry By me, AJP

Yes, Indeed I started my morning out wrong today...but oddly didn't drop one sunflower seed as I fell on ice and the cup didn't fall out of my right hand...I took most of the brunt of the fall on my left arm..

This afternoon I can't even hold my camera without pain in my left am showing a picture that I shot yesterday of the ice storm in our yard and I am thankful I stayed on my feet to shoot it..

Winter is definitely not for sissies. instead it keeps us strong!

    Your photo of the snow is a beautiful winter wonderland, your poem is so fitting. So sorry that you slipped on the ice and hurt your arm!!! I am sure that the birds that were watching anxiously were relieved to see you get up, then they were thankful for the sunflower seeds : )

    Take care of that arm Andrea! I love this photo. The branches all bent,twisted and covered with snow are natures art! Nice!

    It`s such a beautiful winter wonderland you captured here.. a splendid shot, Andrea!! Sorry about your fall, and hoping that your arm will recover very soon. Winter certainly is not for sissies, and the simplest actions can really take a person for a fall. Take care..

    Thank you everyone for your kind words...I hope also to have my wrist back to normal soon.
    Have it wrapped but just to twist or turn to even do the most simple tasks such as zipping up my coat where it takes two hands is not fun to experience:) But am learning to be patient.
