A shift in attitude

Let it Snow : )
"Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine." Anthony J. D'Angelo

I seem to be getting this message today.  We are still in blizzard conditions here in Missouri. The wind has been doing unbelievable things.  My daughter called and said her friend is stuck on the 70/54 Hwy exit that leads to our town. The wind there was so bad today that it not only pushed his truck and trailer into a snow drift. But he sat there stuck, and watched another trucker go in the serves station. Only to return and wonder who hit his truck. As it was now facing the opposite direction.   I was in awe of the power of wind and ice. I had no clue something that big could be pushed completely around, from a stand still position.  Where he is at is a good place. He may be stuck. But the Hwy he need to be on is now closed 100 miles +/- each way. He has 4, 24 hour places on that corner to find food, warmth and companionship. So he will be fine.


I am thankful we are all staying safe in our caves. The snow is so deep we will have to go out of a window to shovel the door open. On a positive note. If we do get the 30-40 mph winds and sub zero temps tonight. Maybe the wind will blow the path clear. But we have no where to go. We sent our youngest daughter and her 2 kids to stay with some one else. That way we do not have to worry about the little ones if we loose power. They are at a place with a generator.

Now for the shift in attitude.
Today I received a letter from Jaime talking about a shift in attitude. I read a post on face book talking of attitude change.
Now the prompt for Wish casting Wednesday is:

What burden do you wish to put down?

 So I feel I am going to follow the clues.
I am feeling good about the snow. In the past I had winter blues. But I decided to put it in my head. The snow is beautiful. I am painting a new picture of winter in my mind. Like the one above. The man Skeiron, was the Greek god of the northwest wind.I picked him to use in my art today. Because our wind is blowing from the NW. Both the stamp and building have his image. The snow woman is the one that just melted away. My Daughter and her oldest son, built her right in front of my Living room window. She was fun while she lasted.
This month though I will not only revive my life but I will add shift to it. As Feb has in the past not only been the month for Valentines day. But also On that day Feb 14, 1999 Hubby came home from work while having a heart attach. Feb 14, 2001 I flew to Ohio to spend the last day of my birth fathers life, watching him die on Feb 15. I use to have thanks giving on Feb 15, Because I was thankful nothing happened the day before. But This year I am going to celebrate the day it is meant to be. A day of Love. I release to the universe all the past memory's of that day. As they are over.
I will also shift my attitude every day to love.
I will no longer carry any burdens with me to the next day.

  10. Mother Nature is very powerful and I don't think any of us realise her power till something like this happens.

    I hope you can release all the bad thoughts and feelings to a higher power. I put my thoughts to the universe as often as I need to...
