So Friday was an unusual day for us in the Deep South.  It was a bonafide SNOW DAY.  Not just one of those half inch piddly things that make Yankees laugh at us for shutting down schools and emptying store shelves of milk and bread.  Oh, no- a really, truly you-can-measure-it snow day.  

We had 5-6 inches at our house.  Wet, sticky stuff that clung to the needles on the pine trees and cedars and brought down limbs left and right.  A whole 30 foot cedar fell over in front of our tractor shed!

On the back side of all this cold wet stuff we lost power, got it back but then lost our Internet connection.

Since noon on Friday I’ve been disconnected from Facebook, the blog and text messages.

And where I live I don’t get cell phone service so I can’t even access those things with my phone.

I hope to be back up and running by Wednesday but please be patient.  🙂 

I will try to continue the Advent for the Brokenhearted posts and catch up for missed days.

Until then, I’ll be reposting some old blogs because I can do that quickly, on the fly, when I manage to get a few minutes of service at a friend’s house or on my phone running errands.

I really, really miss everyone!  I am encouraged every day when I “talk” to folks in the morning before starting my day! 

So until I’m back-be good to one another.  

This is a tough time of year for so, so many hearts.  

Smile, extend grace, assume the best.  ❤
