Rough day on the farm; stillborn lambs, truck sliding off the ice-covered driveway into a ditch. On a day like this it is easy to wish you were someplace else. I think back to this time a year ago when the family was getting ready for a grand adventure in the Hawaiian Islands. It is tempting to daydream yourself back there. I have some beautiful photos from that trip, but thought this one was a good reminder that, even in paradise, nature doesn't always cooperate and, just maybe, I should view our bit of ice and snow with a little more perspective.
