Weather Wise


by Deanne Davis

6-Day Forecast Sierra Madre, Ca.

“I always prefer to believe the best of everybody; it saves so much trouble.” 
Rudyard Kipling

“Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?” 
Lucy Maud Montgomery

No more discussion about rain. It’s going to be Spring. It’s going to be 
beautiful. The Wistaria is going to bloom like never before. All Sierra 
Madre’s gardens will be absolutely awesome. Wildflowers will bloom on 
every hill and there will be peace in our little corner of the world.

Trust me!

That quote by Rudyard Kipling up there at the top is a wonderful thought. I 
totally agree with it and live my life that way. However, there is currently a 
person or entity of some sort that is continually hacking into my computer, 
attempting to either rob me blind or drive me around the bend. I am not 
thinking the best of that person. The tech guy is coming tomorrow to see if 
he can find my menace and banish him forever to someplace unpleasant. 

Friday,, March 1st, was our daughter, Patti’s, birthday. You will remember Patti is our Leap Year birthday girl. The 1st 
was also our granddaughter, Nicole’s, birthday. Patti gave herself the gift of a lifetime some years ago on her birthday. 
Her daughter, Nicole. Happy birthday, Patti and Nicole, a few days late. I know the day was filled with joy, laughter 
and delight. These women are awesome.

And, speaking of awesome, I don’t know if you’ve heard of this book: The Book of Awesome, by Neil Pasricha, 
which I bought for myself from Amazon for $11.08. Neil listed so many absolutely awesome things in his book…
small simple things. It got me thinking about all the awesome things around me. The picture today is of flowers…

Awesome is an adjective meaning extremely impressive or daunting, inspiring great admiration.

You’ll be able to whip up your own list of awesome things in about ten seconds because we are

surrounded by awesomeness. Here are a few of mine:

Being inside and watching rain pouring down outside.

Watching the sun come up every day.

The first cup of coffee in the morning. And a lemon muffin to go with it.

Seeing a friend you haven’t seen in a while.

Reading a really good book.

Finding a $5 bill in your pocket.

Getting a letter in the mail.

Turning the seat warmer on in your car.

Having a good hair day.

Finding the sheets or towels you’ve been dying to have unexpectedly on sale. 

Flowers. Any kind of flower, any color, any shape.

Weighing yourself and finding you’ve actually lost a pound or two.

Unexpectedly seeing the full moon early in the morning.

Watching a hummingbird build a nest in the tree outside your window.

Knowing God loves us no matter what.

Crawling into bed with clean sheets on it.

Seeing pictures of your grandchildren doing adorable things.

Going out to eat and finding you have rewards and your bill is $10 less.

Turning on your car and one of your favorite Jimmy Buffet songs is playing.

In a world where you can be anything you want to be…Be KIND!

“Until further notice, celebrate everything!” David Wolfe
