I hope your TV station shows some pictures of the Cherry Blossoms in Wash., D.C. They're at the peak of their bloom and the parade is today. And it looks as if the weather will cooperate; at 8:38 a.m., the temp is already 52 degrees, the sky is clear and blue, and the sunshine is very welcome. All of the tourists who have come to D.C. for this festival should be happy, today.

Don, the quotes are heart-warming and should remind all of us to look around and appreciate the natural beauty which God gives us; thank you for them.

Inspirational quotes for today and to remember. I know I am fortunate to live close to Nature. Asked if it is hard makes me laugh, of course, it isn't easy sometimes, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
