For the most part, I’m a positive person. I can find the half-full glass, even if it takes a bit of effort on my part.
But I confess, the invasion of the sovereign country of Ukraine by Putin has been a big mountain to climb. I’m not going to pretend I’ve found good in this event, but I’m going to hope that eventually, we’ll all find something positive from this awful experience.
Like we’ll find inspiration in the bravery of the Ukrainians in defending their country. How the majority of the western world has come together. Maybe we’ll all come together to support the concept of democracy.
It’s not easy, but like anything of value, it will take work to find the positive.
Because this situation weighs so heavy on my heart and mind, I’m going to post pictures that will hopefully give us a lift. I’m blessed to live on a lake with amazing sunrises and sunsets, where we get to see lots of wildlife.

Third Row: Sunrise.
As I said, we’re really blessed to live here.
I know many of you are living through the umpteenth snowstorm of this winter. Here in Texas, we’re looking at a third bout of ice, but this one will be small compared to the first two. So, I hope you are safe and warm and will spare a prayer for the Ukrainians.
