It’s snowing here and in my excitement, even though I didn’t have to get up early, I was up early. Silly I know for me to not sleep in, because going out today is not a viable option, but the child-like wonder in watching snow fall has never left me. So here I sit, coffee in hand and snuggled under a blanket in our warm home, watching the snow fall outside in what is being called a blizzard. Ah, the benefits of being a Jersey Girl!
Especially when snow is falling at night, I am entranced by the wonder of each individual snowflake being unique, much like human beings. Collectively they fall from the sky to pile up together, nestled on the ground, and then blown by the winds to be swept up again into drifts.
I love snow like I love people – I love their uniqueness, their quirky ways and their ability to bond together to form a cohesive snowball! LOL I know I’m being silly here, but I can’t help it. I’m giddy today. I just can’t help myself from smiling. I don’t even care that it will take me a long time and much effort to clear a path, clean off our cars and get out after the storm has ceased. But for now, the winds are blowing, the snow is falling and since we have no place to go – so as the song goes – Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
I am feeling innately sated today and I’m counting my blessings. We have homemade chicken soup all ready for lunch (and maybe even dinner?) if the mood suits us. Plenty of snacks and some movies to enjoy watching together. There’s no school and no work to attend today so we will just enjoy being together, safe and sound, watching the outside world be covered in a mantle of white lace.
Life is good friends. Shine your heartlights.
