We are currently buried in 8 inches of thick, wet snow. The kind that sticks to everything and creates this beautiful winterscape that makes you wish it could remain forever - quiet, untouched and perfect. I like to think that winter is God's way of slowing us down and forcing us to appreciate the things that surround us. You don't notice each branch on every tree quite as much as you do when there is snow clinging to them, and the gentle footprints of a deer is most apparent when they're the only signs of life in your backyard. The entire world seems to become hushed, brighter and cleaner.
Today I am feeling especially blessed from this snow. It always makes me feel more at peace - and as a bonus, my husband returned home from work shortly after leaving. It's a family snow day for us and I plan on enjoying every minute of it.
Any suggestions as to what we can do today?
