Below is such a beautiful simple quote...Enjoy

"There is something joyful about storms that interrupt routine. Snow or freezing rain suddely releases you from expectations, performance demands, and the tyranny of appointments and schedules. And unlike illness, it is largely a corporate rather than individual experience. One can almost hear a unified sigh rise from the nearby city and surrounding countryside where Nature has intervened to give respite to the weary humans slogging it out within her purview. Everyone understands and shares in this singular justification and the sudden alleviation of the pressure to produce makes the heart merry. Even if it's harldy more than a day or two, somehow each person feels like the master of his or her own world, simply because those little droplets of water freeze as they hit the ground." "The Shack" by Wm. Paul Young.

Ria, Crazy thing is I have only read 4 pages but was pouring over them so that it seems like I had been reading for hours. I am so excited to continue to read it but also have 5 different quilt projects in the works or in my brain. Couldn't sleep wishing I would get up :). Nice to start my morning with you! Em
