Please except my apologies, on how long it has been since I last wrote. Only you would understand what I have been threw. Not only have I been threw a long, hard cold winter, but also threw a severely busy one. In ohio, winters are long and harsh. Every day is colder than the one before. Sometimes it is so cold that I wish I could just stay in bed all day. Each day I get more fed up with the weather. At the same time winter is beautiful. To much snow though, gets very boring. At about the end of January, or even earlier, every one misses green, for all they see is white. People are pleading with the weather to get warm. Like it will do them any good, since winter is not over till at least early March, if not later. Every one ignores that fact and does it any way. Spring always comes when it see it right to, just when we think we will never see any color again, it comes.
