What happens matters.

Katie is finally home.
I am thankful that this little chick is in our cozy nest.


The sun is nervous
As a kite
That can't quite keep
Its own string tight.

Some days are fair
And some are raw.
The timid earth
Decides to thaw.

Shy budlets peep
From twigs on trees,
And robins join
The chickadees.

Pale crocuses
Poke through the ground
Like noses come
To sniff around.

The mud smells happy
On our shoes.
We still wear mittens,
Which we lose.

John Updike

One day at a time,
Stay home.
Save lives.

What happens matters.
Love you guys,
Donna Elsie
