The Tuff Ol' Bird's In My LIfe...

"The North wind doth blow and we shall have snow,
and what will the robin do then, poor thing?"

Was what Aunt Leona said as her open coat was flapping
as she was running barefoot over our new blue living room carpet...

Her eye's don't give away a thing do they?!

I was pondering the other night...
My Aunt's, Grandmother's and Mom ...
and you know what?
 They were some pretty tuff ol Bird's!

They each had hard things in thier lives...
The kinds of hard things that feel like they will kill you,
but just barley don't~

And yet these women all had  a wonderful sense of humor.
They were amazing women who did hard things.

I have that example in my life,
I have that blood in my vien's.

I have been seeing these amazing women's traits 
and abilites emerge in the lives of my sister's and myself
all my life. But am just now realizing it more fully...

And I feel confident telling you 
We have done, and sadly, continue to do hard things...
and we each have a pretty good sense of humor

~ I think ~

So remember;

We're fool's whether we dance or not. So we might as well dance.
