I pray you were able
to have a good night’s rest
and are feeling your best,
you know you should

I congratulate you
on waking up today.
Not everybody may
be so lucky

    1. Thank you.
      We had a foot deep blanket of snow and minus 17 here. The sunshine is beautiful reflecting off the fresh snow.
      Looks like a great day.
      Have a good one,
