We've had a long haul this past year with health issues for all of us, Rob's car accident and the injuries, E's heart problems and the long battle getting rid of the cancer on his head, his balance problems, the kids with the baby issue which has been successfully resolved and my fight to lose weight to lower my soaring blood pressure. We have dealt with these and have found comfort from each other and from our friends. And I love that word, comfort.
With the economy in the pits, the wars and now the destruction in Haiti, it is often hard to find comfort in our daily lives. I have started a quest this year to do my 365 book a bit differently. I will pick one word a month (Jan.'s word is Exhilaration)and take photographs during that month that, to me, portray that word. I have chosen the word "COMFORT" for Feb.
We had a couple of horrible frosts here in Paradise at the start of this month causing lots of destruction for the citrus farmers and our garden is only a smidgen of what the cold brought yet, out of the dead or dead looking plants, yesterday I found our camellia bush breaking out in a glorious array in the midst of several brown and saggy plants and our roses in wanton disregard of the sad fate of many of our other plants.
Out of this, I take comfort.
I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
