Keep me as the apple of the eye. hide me under the shadows of thy wings....Psalm 17: 8

Hard to believe Spring is tomorrow
After another winter storm...
We must not waste time in sorrow
E'en tho' it is not yet too warm
Soon we'll see the sun!
For now I'll accept the cold
There will always be time for fun...
The alternative is to grow old.

Poetry by me AJP

What surprises me the most is that the frozen apples are still on the trees yet after several storms and if they can hang on in spite of an endless winter with lots of snow I can too.

I have learned to accept the long winters which is really a part of accepting ourselves and our strengths... live with what we are given and seek the beauty in what is given..

    I am surprised the deer haven't found those apples, they would never last that long around here.

  • Andrea Petersen

    Andrea Petersen said (20 Mar 2014):

    Thank you all for your kind response... Fred, the snow has been so deep in the woods that
    we have not seen much of the deer this winter...It has been very tough going for the wildlife
    and I have heard that many of the wild turkey's around the country side did not make it this winter and have been found dead because the snow was so deep they couldn't find enough
    food to eat to keep them alive.

    Beautiful s/p, Andrea! I fully agree. Living in "snow belts" makes us stronger I think, and we learn to adjust to some of the hardships. We are going to have more snow tomorrow afternoon, but only 1-3" this time! I LOVE those boots!!!
