"I've come to know that our families are a canvas on which we paint our greatest hopes---imperfect and sloppy, for we are all amateurs at life, but if we do not focus too much on our mistakes, a miraculous picture emerges. And we learn that it's not the beauty of the image that warrants our gratitude---it's the chance to paint."

Spider Web or Icicle
Oh my goodness, it is freezing here today and I just walked out onto our deck to check the thermometer to see what the temperature was. On my way back into the house I saw what could have been an enormous, intricately designed spider web that has been there since last summer or a beautiful but life threatening icicle. In my heart of hearts I know it is a spider web, but for now I'm going to call it an icicle because actually it is an icicle spider web. Whatever it is I'll take care of it when everything defrosts.
