Welcome 2019

We are probably all tired of the constant raining, but we are blessed beyond measure! We could have had it much worse if it had been ice and snow mixed in. That may be here down the line, since it is winter. Just thankful for present time. The sun was a welcome sight and hope it sticks around this week!
