I've had the blues even though the sun has come out. You know, health issues, tweedle issues on & off, etc, etc, etc. I guess, mostly health issues. This morning as I sat down to my newly cleaned, I can find the surface of my desk, I looked over to the file cabinet on my left. I have 5 African violets in a spot where they soak up the sunlight they need on a daily basis. Three out of five of the violets are beginning to bloom. Just as the color outside is fading - the color in my home is beginning to blossom. I love violets & I seem to get them to bloom each fall & winter as the outside get dreary. They haven't let me down & it's the same this year. Someone is watching over me.
