Spring Fever

It was cloudy and cold today in Western Pennsylvania but I had a touch of spring fever. I couldn’t resist taking some shots of these pretty flowers…indoors of course.

The Last Days of Winter

Your time has come, now hasten little snowflakes,
To vanish quite away;
The spring-tide hours are sounding gentle warnings
Forbidding you to stay.
~ M. E. Hathaway




Weekly Photo Challenge – Harmony

Weekly Photo Challenge – Harmony

From early childhood piano lessons to years spent directing the church choir, music has always been part of my life. Music notes, lyrics, and tempos flow through my veins. I’ve passed this trait on to my children and each one has a special gift for music. Music is a huge part of our family and my second child is even pursuing music as a career.

When all of the musical stars align…harmony is the result. But if one note is off-key, the sound can be cringe-worthy. The same can be said for our relationships and families. Recently, my family’s harmony has been off-key. A string of unfortunate events has lead to tension and I’ve been trying to get us back on track. I see progress and I know we will be fine…and stronger!

Missing a few notes and starting the whole song over only makes you a better musician. Weathering the storms and finding your family’s harmony again only makes you a better family.
