Our Lake Frozen

Our lake was really frozen this morning - no ducks standing in part ice/part water today. Didn't see any ducks! It rarely freezes over the whole surface so it's interesting ot see. Long day at work, home for dinner & to meet with friend to do step work (finally finished - Step 12) and waiting for Adam to come in some time tonight.

It's cold here!

It's blue blazing cold here. I'm attaching photos of ice on the lake - the ducks are standing in the lake! Also, here are some photos of the view from my office window yesterday morning. Life sometimes comes full circle. From my office I can see the Wonder Bread Bakery where my Daddy worked most of his life and where we went to see him as kids. Across the street from the bakery is A S Martin & Sons body shop which was Philip's grandfather's business and is still there today. Wow! Also, from my office I can see the first law office I worked in (at the far right of the photo) and the next law office (at the far left of the photo) where I worked before going to work out in east Memphis where I stayed for 22 years before going back downtown. You never know what life will bring. It's good to have a design for living that really works, to be able to face life on life's terms, to remember that to live fully means to experience some of everything!

Family Drama

Well, if you haven't heard yet, nephew John Dalton's mobile home burned down and he and the little girls got out safely and are looking for new digs! Hopefully, they'll find a new place soon and we can start getting together all the stuff you'd need to start from scratch! It's really mind - boggling when you think of all the stuff you have and actually use daily to keep a home going! Wow. Bless all their hearts and pray for calm, faith, courage and perserverance for all.
Hope everyone has a great day.
By the way if you haven't seen them yet, here are the latest funny pictures of Genesis staring at her toy monkey! What a personality this kid is going to have!
