Tis A Lovely Spring Day

April 12, 2018

Good morning.  It looks so good to look out and see the sun shining.  It's 50F degrees at the moment, working its way up to 57F degrees.  Oh it feels sooooo good!  I know we still have cold temps coming, but a day like today really helps.  Spring is trying so hard to get here. 

I'll have to take my camera outside today to see which of my trees is budding.  My plants are all still coming up.  Some of the daffodils even have buds!  Pretty soon, we can take the covers off my porch screens and I can get the porch set up. 

The other night I heard a brand new song by Willie Nelson, and I just had to have it.  (I've already pre-ordered it)  Willie is turning 85 and is releasing a brand new album "Last Man Standing" on April 27th.  The song is titled "Somethng You Get Through" and is beautifully written.  I would post the video of the song here, but I don't know if it is allowed.  However, you can go to You Tube and watch the video.  Here's a picture of the new album cover.


And here are the lyrics to this beautiful song:

 "Something You Get Through"

 When you lose the one you love
 You think your world has ended
 You think your world will be a waste of life
 Without them in it
 You feel there's no way to go on
 Life is just a sad, sad song
 But love is bigger than us all
 The end is not the end at all
 It's not somethin' you get over
 But it's somethin' you get through
 It's not ours to be taken
 It's just a thing we get to do
 Life goes on and on
 And when it's gone
 It lives in someone new
 It's not somethin' you get over
 But it's somethin' you get through
 It's not somethin' you get over
 But it's somethin' you get through
 It's not ours to be taken
 It's just a thing we get to do
 Life goes on and on
 And when it's gone
 It lives in someone new
 It's not somethin' you get over
 But it's somethin' you get through
 It's not somethin' you get over
 But it's somethin' you get through

I also promised to post the new scrap page that I made for Pogo's little friend, Cisco.  I found the poem on the web and checked to see if I could find the author.  I could not, but the poem was available on several sites (on Google).  I've made this available as a quick page in case any of you would like it. 


Here's your download link (for the quick page only):

I always include credits on my TOU in case anyone wants to look up the kits that I use to make my quick pages.  There are some really beautiful scrap kits, and the prices are very reasonable.

Wow, I just learned something very interesting.  I have been here on this earth for 28, 649 days.  That comes out to 687,576 hours.  How's that for making someone feel old???  Info can be found on Google about the day you were born.  It's fun, so look it up sometime.

Well, I've finished my coffee and I'm going to head over to the kitchen to make a fresh cup of it to enjoy while I do my morning blog reading.  I love starting my day this way.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day. 

Hugs, Edna B.

Oh Edna,
I hadn't posted the page on my blog as of yet as you were looking around for where you had gotten the poem. I had to show it to everyone I know and they had tears in their eyes. I can't stop the tears just yet but I can smile a bit more right now. Thank you so very much. This means a lot to me. A Beautiful page and Beautiful memory.

I love Willie Nelson. He is one of my favorites. I have met him several times and he is just as down to earth as you and I.
Anytime someone posts something on YouTube you can add it to your blog as it basically a free domain. I just make sure to look and see if there are any copyright laws attached. If not then I post it but say it is from YouTube. There is usually a share button.

I am waiting for my ride to get here so that I can go to the doctor. I messed up and missed an appointment with my gastroenterologist Feb 23rd. They put me down as a No Show. I am not sure but I think that was when I was so sick with that terrible flu and bronchitis. Anyway I have rescheduled for May 11th, so I will be seeing him. It was just a follow up.

Ok gotta run. My driver called and he is 10 minutes away. Have a super day... xxx Beth

What a cool thing to find out how many days you have been alive. I have been on the earth 23,480 days. I love the Willie Nelson song. I have a friend whose mother just went into hospice. She loves his music so I will send the link to her.
