I had not really planned on taking a trip this time of year, and yet, I found myself packing rather hurriedly. This trip was going to be unpleasant and I knew in advance that no real good would come ofit. I'm talking about my annual "Guilt Trip".
I got tickets to fly there on "WISHIHAD" airlines. It was an extremely short flight. I got my baggage, which, I could not check. I chose to carry it myself all the way. It was weighted down with a thousand memories of what might have been.
I started to realize that I did not have to be there. I didn't have to be depressed. One thing kept going through my mind, "I can't change yesterday, but I do have the power to make today a wonderful day".
By the way, you don't have to carry around heavy baggage, because the load is lifted from your shoulders upon arrival. You too, can find this new town, just ask the Lord to show you the way. Now I live on ICANDOITstreet.
GOOD MORNING !
I’m regretting the fact that it is snowing in northern Ohio. I am having a pity party for all the buds that are getting nipped with below freezing temps. Not only us but many others too.
I’m praying for some sunshine and warmth for sure. I know we all need it badly.
I keep trying to put away that winter coat, but then I have to drag it out again. This may be the winter it gets worn out!
Wool socks and long johns are still a part of my wardrobe. I’m tired of carrying all these layers around. I know that the spring like days we should be having are just around the corner, but they are taking their time.
Winter just doesn’t know how to quite this year!

The mistakes to avoid:
