      Hello Jeanne! Yes what a relief it must be after such a harsh winter. Residing more west, my heart has been going out to all who have been hammered on the eastern part of the continent! May spring burst forth asap! xo Gina

    These are all good thoughts. I like Heinlein particularly. I think that true loving hurts more from the loved one suffering and us being helpless to heal it, than even losing their love.

    Great post for today. I have learned to check my motives for doing anything for something or someone at the door. If I expect something in return I remember such a motive usually leads to expectations which can often lead to resentment if those expectations aren’t met. Expect nothing and be grateful for everything.
