January has been a month of abundance and beauty here at the Groves, many wonderful guests and events. Between events, during the 3rd week of January, we got snowed in for a few days which was actually delightful as we did not lose power (which we usually do when there is a storm). Ariel and Tavi (Therese’s daughter and grandson) chose to get snowed in with us, coming from Seattle the evening before the storm was predicted to arrive. Needless to say, we all enjoyed each other’s company and the beautiful white frosting that coated everything. It melted enough in time for the two-day Compassionate Listening training to happen as scheduled. Mother Nature is so good to us–we are so grateful for this sweet life we enjoy at the Groves.
