Trapped?

When things get you down and you feel you can't get up...



When you feel stuck in the same place and you wish you weren't there...



 When you think things are too scary to tackle and it would be easier to stay where you are....



And when things seem a little sideways and you feel they're about to topple...



Just remember:
The best way out is always through.
                                                                     ~Robert Frost~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hmm....best way out is through. 
Sounds good to me.
Drive through a few cities and towns, through the border, through a few states....all the way down south as far as I can get. 
To heat.
EXACTLY what some dear people I know are doing....

(And as another blizzard once again pummels me with snow, I'm wondering why I didn't follow through with that same idea....)

Check out my Mom's Blog on This and That.
{For us up here in the north, it may be the reprieve we need.}

From the dog booties to the trapped fluffy one to the look on top dog's face - oh boy - that picture sure made me smile :D

Moving through the issue is best! Great advice.

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Oh the dog booties! Spring comes every year, right? It'll come again. Hang in there!

Keep moving (but then, first of April, I'll head south for a 10 days). Hang in there.

Funny I thought about this today. So I packed up my books, headed to class and told myself I will get through this.

Gosh I LOVE this Blog-- Your pics and words always make me grin and "Warm the Cockles of my Heart". Now I have been in Medicine for 30 years , and have taken it longer than that--But I have never seen Cockles, on an EKG strip--are a real Heart for that matter!

WIKED-Pedia didn't help much either!...so I guess we just have to PUSH ON THROUGH!

Great Post!

So encouraging! We have snow on the mountain tops, but drizzly rain in the valley. Damp, cold rain. I shall wish some rain your way so you will see grass again!
