Sunrise on the Eastern Shore

  
  
  
  

This morning, we were blessed to wake up the most beautiful Eastern Shore sunrise.  Not only were Marylands sweetest birds chirping and foxes playing with each other on the water front; but two double rainbows were arched directly over the Inn.  It was absolutely breathtaking and left our normally talkative Innkeeper, speechless.  We thought we would share it's wonderous beauty with all of you.

The Staff at Combsberry would like to wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year!  We thank you for your support, your business and your loyalty in the previous years and look forward to your next visit with us.


This New Years morning is a cold one, and our resident deer are out feeding on the back lawn.  Squirrels are forever chasing each other and gathering nuts.  Blue Jays and Cardinals, too, are bickering over what is theirs.  The scene is busy, but of nothing greater than quiet serenity and Mother Nature at her best.  Scenes like this are a treat to many of our city living guests.  We would love to host you for a weekend so you may experience all that the Eastern Shore of Maryland has to offer.  Our elegant rooms feature comfortable beds, gas or wood burning fireplaces, jacuzzi tubs and endless excitment watching the world whirl by outside.
If you were proposed to over the holidays, we welcome your inquiries about weddings at our facility.  Situated on 35 waterfront acres, we will positively make your big day a stunning one.  A day you will obviously remember, and so too will your guests.  Our Innkeeper has a wealth of knowledge on weddings and would be more than happy to help you decide if Combsberry is the setting for your Happy Ever After.  Please feel free to call her, anytime, at 410-226-5353 or email combsberry@yahoo.com with your questions.
Again, we welcome you into this New Year.  "We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day." ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce

Some Inspiration to Bring Us Into 2013

  
  
  
  

One always has to know when a stage comes to an end. If we insist on staying longer than the necessary time, we lose the happiness and the meaning of the other stages we have to go through.

 

Closing cycles, shutting doors, ending chapters – whatever name we give it, what matters is to leave in the past the moments of life that have finished.

 

Did you lose your job? Has a loving relationship come to an end? Did you leave your parents’ house? Gone to live abroad? Has a long-lasting friendship ended all of a sudden?
You can spend a long time wondering why this has happened.

 

You can tell yourself you won’t take another step until you find out why certain things that were so important and so solid in your life have turned into dust, just like that.
But such an attitude will be awfully stressing for everyone involved: your parents, your husband or wife, your friends, your children, your sister.

 

Everyone is finishing chapters, turning over new leaves, getting on with life, and they will all feel bad seeing you at a standstill.

 

Things pass, and the best we can do is to let them really go away.

 

That is why it is so important (however painful it may be!) to destroy souvenirs, move, give lots of things away to orphanages, sell or donate the books you have at home.

 

Everything in this visible world is a manifestation of the invisible world, of what is going on in our hearts – and getting rid of certain memories also means making some room for other memories to take their place.

 

Let things go. Release them. Detach yourself from them.

 

Nobody plays this life with marked cards, so sometimes we win and sometimes we lose.
Do not expect anything in return, do not expect your efforts to be appreciated, your genius to be discovered, your love to be understood.

 

Stop turning on your emotional television to watch the same program over and over again, the one that shows how much you suffered from a certain loss: that is only poisoning you, nothing else.

 

Nothing is more dangerous than not accepting love relationships that are broken off, work that is promised but there is no starting date, decisions that are always put off waiting for the “ideal moment.”

Before a new chapter is begun, the old one has to be finished: tell yourself that what has passed will never come back.

 

Remember that there was a time when you could live without that thing or that person – nothing is irreplaceable, a habit is not a need.

 

This may sound so obvious, it may even be difficult, but it is very important.

 

Closing cycles. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because that no longer fits your life.

 

Shut the door, change the record, clean the house, shake off the dust.

 

Stop being who you were, and change into who you are.

~Paulo Coelho
