All Is Calm…

12.19.0812.19.08deerThe beauty here is quite indescribable.  It’s peaceful and wonderful.  We’ve started feeding the deer again.  Having the snow come so quick, so deep and with such low temperatures is hard on them, so we’ll do our little part here to help the deer population out.

I’m a little sad too this morning.  My family headed across the state to meet up with the rest of the fam to celebrate Christmas with Mr T’s side of the family.  With the weather the way it is, it’s necessary that someone stay on the home front to make sure things are OK here.  We have 2 fires that have to keep going 24/7 and animals who’s water dishes seem to be continually frozen.  Besides I would so much rather be the one NOT driving on those roads and over a pass where chains are required.  The other thing that’s happening today is my #2 child is having her wisdom teeth pulled, actually probably right now as I’m writing this.  I makes me feel horrible that I’m not there for her but at 20 I also know that there are many paths she’ll cross where I can’t be by her side.  She’ll do just fine and her dad will bring her home tomorrow night so I can take care of her then.

wallflower for Mom TI made this for my m-i-l.  We lost my father-in-law just a little over a year ago and when I was trying to think of what to make Mom T, I just couldn’t get past this idea of “No Tears In Heaven” (which I’ve used once before).  I think that she will be deeply touched by this very personal ‘Wallflower’.
