I grabbed this one out of the archives as it is great picture of one of the more popular activities up here in Winter. It was a warm February day, and there was a peacefulness to sitting on the lake during a thaw much like the one we have been experiencing. Spring is around the corner and yet silence still dominates. I am always amazed at how quick it seems to be between the times we can walk on the lake to the times we can swim in it. It is one of those miracles we take for granted.
Today is my brother’s wedding. We will be welcoming his bride Jacqui and her family into ours! I had the pleasure of finally meeting everyone last night and it was a wonderful time. Jacqui has a great family and we are lucky to be getting her…
Jacqui’s Mom said something last night that stuck with me. She said how important it is to the success of a marriage that you never take one another for granted. That is so true. I think we would all be a little happier if we took nothing for granted. Life would be like that first blush of Love every single day. To have someone special to share it makes Life itself seem even more the miracle that it is.
Appropriately, it is a Valentine’s wedding and despite a little thaw, Muskoka is in her snow covered glory. Here’s is wishing them Peace and Happiness… and that they never take each other for granted.
And to everyone – Happy Valentine’s Day!
