Teachers plan. I am a teacher. Deliberate planner. Been thinking about what the future is going to be. Wanting God's hand in the plan. He knows I never wanted Plan B of my life, but I've had to deal with it. Sometimes grief comes sneaking in and blows me over like the wind on the eastern plains. Then it's gone.

Plan C is waiting in the wings. When it appears, I'll let you know.

For now, spring is here and the flower beds need to be cleaned! Daffodils AND tulips are coming up at the same time. Usually the tulips are later... and the WEEDS. Violets are only a dream for now. Just like the future.♥♫

Dear Marilyn, Thinking about you today. Grief does take us by surprise. Praying God hugs you with comfort.

Spring has sprung and I love it! Our Flower Beds need attention, but first we're working on the's a mess around here.

Happy thoughts,

Spring is the time for renewal, and with Easter coming up it is a great time of the year. God is in charge of Plan C - and maybe it will explain why Plan A was cut short. Hang in there!!! Sally

I don't know a lot of people who's lives go as they planned...Lucky them. I have learned too it is always good to have plan B and not get to stuck on the fact that there had to be a plan B. Have fun with your spray painter, compared to spray cans it seems really powerful at first, but then by the time you use it the second time you will love it!

I am not sure of my plan either. God has plans for us all :) Plan C will begin when it is time.
I have been weeding too :(

I haven't been by in a while. It sounds like you are prayerfully in the midst of a change in your life. That's the best way to handle things. Aren't we having the most gorgeous spring?

I wish you lots of love and peace. My kids are studying to be teachers. The jobs are slim to none! So sad! I worry about them! My girlfriends son graduated from DU two years ago with a degree in Biochemistry! He is working as a bouncer in a nightclub!
But in life, we need to do what is best for us I keep praying something good will come my way. My job is so miserable. I will be praying for you! Hugs Anne
