Sun, hugs, travel❣️

Spring, definitely. We had an 18 and 1/2 inch snow last week and we are expecting 6 to 8 inches more the next few days. My tulip leaves were about 4 inches tall when the snow bomb hit. And an end to covid stretchy time. Days and weeks blur together. My husband and I have both had our vaccines and yet we are still hesitant to eat indoors in a restaurant with friends. An end to fear is what I really need.

Covid to end so I can hug my grandson and children.

Chère Corey,

Une bonne question! Time doesn't wait for us so we should not wait to enjoy the time we have now; easier said than done though.

May your day be filled with love and joy,

I am so happy spring has arrived with all of her beauty.
I will be so happy when the worlds can declare this pandemic to be over and we shall
say let the celebrations begin.
Much love

All of the above —- and to hug and love the daylights out of our family and friends.....freedom to do and be where the heart takes me.

Spring most defiantly! More calm and peace in the world.

SPRING yessss my new fence which also includes my raised beds for roses. Planting annuals, replacing shrubs that died during the deepfreeze. Having a dinner party for 12 at my home. Fine dining indoors. Travel. Hugs♥️

Where does Linda (who got 18.5" of snow)live? Yikes, that's a lot of snow. I am waiting for the pandemic to recede enough that things are safe again. I've gotten 2 vaccines, but it has not changed my behavior one iota. I still don't feel safe. At least spring is here and the yard is blooming, the sun is shining, my window is open and I owls "hoot" me to sleep. I feel like I'm coming out of hibernation.

I can’t wait to hug my kids and grands!!!!❤️

Waiting for spring bulb flowers (crocuses, daffodils, narcissus, hyacinths, tulips) to bloom. Their foliage is popping up now, and we've passed the Vernal Equinox, so my anticipation is palpable!

The weather here in AZ has flirted with the 80s already so I’m saying good bye to jeans now until the late fall. That signals spring to me and hot weather in the near future. We’ve both had our vaccines and are cautiously venturing out more with masks still and hand sanitizers. In the last few months we have been to restaurants a few times that are very socially distanced and will keep to those for a while and order carry out one or two times a month. The mornings are a bit chilly, but the afternoons are perfect now for sitting on the patio and enjoying the pleasant weather and long walks in the desert.

Your life as you know it has been significantly altered by COVID. And you are grieving for Marty. It will take awhile for you to catch up with the world. Your mind and heart are occupied elsewhere.

I take you posing “What are you waiting for?” Not as a question so much as a call to action. What AM I waiting for? What do I think needs to change—in me—in my life, in the world, with others, with who I am—in order for me to live the life I’ve imagined. What will it take for me to claim it? Why am I waiting and doubting myself? This question of “What are you waiting for?” Combined with the question “Who do you think you are?” Gets to the crux of the issue for me. Not “Who do you think you are?” As a “how dare you?” But as an honest reckoning and encouragement to step up into and own all parts of me, all parts of this life, and not wait until I think I’m good enough or perfect enough to claim what I need and want and desire. What *AM* I waiting for? Perfection? I watched this Ted talk today and it hit home and when she mentioned how she asks everyone she works with “What are you waiting for?” It brought me back to your blog for today and this question. Kismet. I think it will resonate with you, as well, dear Corey, and to all women reading this. It is worth the nine minutes it takes to listen and watch: https://youtu.be/o9erQTmNxPQ

The Ted talk “Brave Over Perfect:” is by Susie Rinehart, I don’t know why it didn’t link in my comment, so here it is again:


She asks what you asked, “What are you waiting for?”

The pandemic has certainly driven her message home to us in ways I don’t think pre-pandemic life ever could, and I am grateful for that.
If it doesn’t link, just go on to YouTube and type in “Susie Rinehart” and “Brave over Perfect.”

Waiting for the world to right itself again - to see family and friends and travel. Have a brand new great-grandson to meet!

Definitely Springtime and Covid to end.
But also for there to be more kindness in the world.
