Yesterday, we got hit by our fourth winter storm in two weeks. Living in the south this is completely unheard of! I am ready to be done with all the snow and ice. I know we haven't even had half as much snow as places like Boston, but when you live in an area where snow is rare, even the slightest amount can cause many problems.

The little amount of snow over the past two weeks has caused several deaths in and around Memphis. Please pray for those in Mississippi. They got hit the hardest yesterday. More than 20 people died and many parts of the state had to completely shut down. Also play for those in Arkansas who are out of power due to the snow. All of us here in the south are absolutely shocked at how much snow we have received this year!

Giving Thanks Through Loss‏

Our family lost two chickens a few weeks ago due to some predator. Well this crazy winter weather ended up killing another one of my chickens about a week ago.

I am thankful to still have four remaining strong chickens. Two years ago I bought 11 chicks and three died within days. Then I ended up giving our unexpected rooster away. He ended up dying at his new home due to another rooster killing him. Then after almost making it through two winters, I loose three more chickens just within weeks of each other.

The deaths have been traumatic, but my four remaining chickens have been keeping life exciting and adventurous. Today I am thankful for the safety of my four chickens. The four of them have proven to be the strongest of the flock.

This is how I show gratitude on Gratituesday.

Crazy Winter Weather

This week is just the continuation of a long string of crazy days. Today we woke up to sheets of ice and low temperatures. But this past Saturday the temps were back in the forties, low fifties with rain by the bucket full. Of course that was just after a week of sub-freezing temperatures and a week of icy roads.

I can't wait until Spring warms things up for good. I am so over winter.
