This is a glimpse of the creek through my back door on the day that it snowed here. The snowstorm was brief but beautiful. Our bleak and dreary landscape was carpeted in soft white cotton that made everything look like new. As quickly as the snow came, it left us thanks to high temperatures.
Our little community of Mathews and a very dear family suffered a tremendous loss today. Without going into details, a young mother lost a fight with cancer.
One of her family members reads this blog, so if you feel inclined, please leave some words of encouragement.
Like our snowstorm, her life was brief yet beautiful.
Life is eternal, and love is immortal; and death is
only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing save the limit
of our sight.
