Well, we say good-bye to leap year Fe­bru­ary and hello to March...spring is not far away friends. As win­ters go, this one has been quite easy on us...not as much snow and def­i­nitely milder tem­per­a­tures. It is a lit­tle chill­ier to­day at -14 and I see a light dust­ing out there this Mon­day morn­ing as I be­gin to write.

And as the spring sea­son nears, it means the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall As­so­ci­a­tion will hold their an­nual meet­ing in a few weeks...Tues­day, March 22 at 7:00 p.m. at the Hall and ev­ery­one is wel- come. They in­vite new­com­ers as fresh in­put and faces are al­ways ap­pre­ci­ated. I will post this an­nounce­ment again the week be­fore the meet­ing.

And a re­minder that the Mor­rin Fig­ure Skat­ing Club is putting on their spring car­ni­val this Sun­day, March 6 at 2:00 p.m. over at the Mor­rin Arena Sport­splex. I no­ticed a cou­ple of pic­tures of the group in the pa­per last week as they par­tic­i­pated in fi­nal com­pe­ti­tions and did very well...way to go girls! Now it is time to wrap up your skat­ing sea­son with a “Car­toon Crazy show on ice”...have fun!

So, our Mor­rin School curl­ing teams are do­ing well also. I think it is pretty neat that our school prin­ci­pal Don Yavis sends up­dates and notes of en­cour­age­ment out to the kids on the school face­book page.

And that is all my up­beat news for to­day...on a sad note, our cor­ner of the world lost a lovely, kind-hearted soul as can­cer claimed the too young, pre­cious life of Chris­tine O’Brien. I did not know her well. In my deal­ings with her in past years at Western Fi­nan­cial where she worked, I liked her in­stantly with her nice smile and soft-spo­ken way. It breaks my heart that she had to say good-bye too soon to her dear hus­band Steve and young sons Con­nor and Kieran. Even in her last days, with pain in her eyes, she still man­aged to sum­mon up a warm smile. No more suf­fer­ing Chris­tine... dear girl...glory is real and heaven is richer We do not un­der­stand the lofty thoughts of God...His ways are not our ways, yet we trust in Him... Psalm 48:14 “For this God is our God for ever and ever, He will be our guide even to the end.” Her fam­ily and friends will gather this Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon at 2:00 p.m. at the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall to re­mem­ber and cel­e­brate her life. Heart­felt thoughts and prayers to all who loved her... to her O’Brien fam­ily, to sis­ters and brother, mom and dad... “Blessed are they that mourn for they will be com­forted.”
