PRESIDENTS” DAY.  Let us all pray for our president and all governmental leaders.  They need it.  We need it.

“Temps flirt with 60s” is the headline in today’s paper.  It’s hard to believe that is a February day.  One has to look hard to find a snow pile to find a snow pile anywhere.  I do believe we will still get another blast of winter weather.  And right now we have a steady rain.  I wonder when it will turn to snow.

Sister Donna finished this 1,000-piece puzzle last week.  It is a beauty.  Because of the irregular shape it took a little longer than usual to complete…but well worth the effort!



And here is another 1,000 piece puzzle that took a while to complete…and another beautiful work of art.


I’m reading the book The Crazy Quilt by Ruth Jesness Tweed and came across this little verse that says it well:
DON’T MOPE.
HOPE!
NO HOPE!
COPE!
CAN’T COPE!
MOPE!

My prayer for you, my readers, is that God bless and continue to care for you.

Peace.

Last Saturday’s Soup Supper is now a memory.  We served 1,043 bowls of soup in the dining room and had 60 servings to go to homes off campus.  The soups were delicious.  The conversations and visiting were wonderful to see and hear.  The weather was conducive to making one want to have good, hot soup.  Thanks to the cooks for their fine work.  Thanks to all who worked to make it a successful event.  The proceeds went to help music students and participants in the Health and Wellness programs.

From my observations, it looks to be a quiet week.  And that is good.  After so many activities, it’s nice to have some catch-up time.

One day last week, Carol brought in her “good dishes” and we Sisters on Second Floor had a nice Tea Party.  The little cakes were delicious and the company was great, too.



I found this blessing on a card and thought it good for all of us.  “May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy.”

God bless you and those you love (and the ones you have a hard time with, too.)


Peace,

Sister Mary Lou
