Where for art thou, spring?

Monday, March 24, 2014
The weather in Kentucky is ridiculous. In a week's time you can sweat from the heat, freeze from the cold, get blown away by the wind, slip on the ice, and wash away in flash floods. For me, as a migraine sufferer, it's torture this time of year. Significant changes in the weather always trigger my migraines.

Today it's 20 degrees, tomorrow it's supposed to snow, and by Friday it's supposed to be back up to around 60. At any rate, Saturday was beautiful. We had Z's Easter pictures taken and I am patiently awaiting their arrival. I CAN'T WAIT! They are going to be adorable! After her pictures, we drove down to the cemetery to do a little springtime decorating for Josey. I haven't had a chance to visit in months because of our horrible winter and I was beginning to feel guilty. This was also the first time I took Z with me. I can't describe what that felt like. We stayed for about 15 minutes or so. Z played in the grass while I picked up and finished decorating. It was really nice and honestly, the first time I actually felt a peace settle over me while I was there. It will be four years next month, which is so hard to believe. However, I am so thankful for where we are today and especially for our beautiful Baby Z!

  1. Our weather has been crazy like that too! I'm glad the Lord blessed you with a pleasant day for visiting Josey. *hugs*

  2. I grew up in the Midwest and we always had weather like that....snowing one minute, shorts weather the next, and then the wind that would practically blow you away! Something I don't miss (oh and the tornadoes).
    I think this was a very sweet post and I hope that moments like this are healing for you with your precious ones.

  3. The snow today here (in KY) is making me very cranky. I have chosen to believe it will be the last of the season. Otherwise I may lose my mind. This winter has been a beast.

  4. I just spent a week in Tennessee and though I loved it, the weather was too much for me! I love my Oregon, where it's almost always mild. We get maybe one snowstorm every winter and maybe two 100+ degree days, but the rest of the time it's fantastic.
