I Hit... The Reset... Button.

When I woke up...this Morn....
I don't know, if I was somewhere between... 'sleep' and 'awake'....
{my favorite place...}
Or... if someone, was saying this...on t.v. and I wove their words... into my dream state....
but.... it made a BIG... Impression...
"You...have to hit the 'reset' button.... when times get tough"....
I realized... every Morning... when your eyes open.... is another chance....
to hit... 'the reset button'....
: )
I'm not the Lone Ranger.....
Seems....Everyone... is battling...something, these days...
This Winter... has been...Insane... across the Country....
Just... making it through... this... is a Mountain....
then... when you throw on...a little more... then...a little more....
and just... a little more.....
you begin...feeling like The Ford....
at an Awesome Auction....
before...John installed... the Air Shocks... : )
{His... 'reset' button...: ) }
Your tires...begin to rub... on the bed....with every... divot...in the road...
and the load... seems...impossible....
Your Clutch.... is slippin'...and your praying... you have enough...'gear' left... to grab... to make it...
Up... the Hill... 
you're climbin'
{and...it might...be...a tiny one...
They are All...Mountains... when The Load..is Heavy... }

My Friend... Wanda... {Gatherings, Anamosa, Iowa... {Don't Miss Her Open House....!!! 
This Weekend!!!}
said, to me..this Eve...
"I thought 'things'...always came in 'Threes'....You should be good...for a Long Time... ! {Her...too... : ) }
because... they have been coming... in Nines...and Twelves....
and...not just for me... but, for so many.
oh my...
I knew...a melt down...was coming.... I'd hoped.... it wouldn't....
but... last night, it did...
then....
This Morn....
I Hit... The Reset Button....
: )
I have Soooo Many...Exciting Things.... coming down the pipeline....
Blessings....
I can't wait to share with you.....
but...not yet....
Garden Party.... will be here...
The First weekend...in April.....
and... It's Gonna Rock.....
Then... I'm headed to Des Moines.... for The Junk Jubilee....
Oh Boy!!!!
{What a Great Event! I was...Beyond... Impressed...}
Late April....
Then... GOLD RUSH!!!
Mother's Day Weekend!!!
Then....
The Memorial Day Weekend Sale... : )
yeah...
When Spring... Dances through the Door....
and Kicks Old Man Winter's Butt....
I'll be there... Kissing Her...Triumphant... Toes... : )
I posted images... from last year's....'Green'....
oh my....
I refuse... to give 'Winter'... another spot... on this blog.
Period.
Love...To Ya!

What a beautiful gift you shared with those beautiful pictures--it was like going thru a beautiful looking glass -- spring-yes it will come (just wonder how many times I can push the reset button before it comes and stays for awhile).
