It is almost hard to belief how winter has hit us with such a sudden bang. It was only about 2 weeks ago that we had no snow and now we have an amount equal to about 2/3 of our entire snow fall last year. It is beautiful when the snow first arrives. It is suddenly so much brighter outside as the snow reflects the light of the street lights in the nights. Now I have lived through enough winters that it shouldn’t surprise me yet every year it seem to do just that. The first snow fall carpets the ground and the streets. This “carpet” on the roads deadens a lot of the traffic noise and vehicle glide by almost silently. Now that only seems to last for about a day as the snow gets packed down to form ice and ruts and we are back to normal. But, for that day it is almost magical.
I have noticed that some how I have changed over the past while. I do seem to notice and appreciate those small wonders.Our street is lined with beautiful old elm trees. I have always thought that was nice, a street lined with a bunch of trees is beautiful. I still see that but I see each individual tree as its own unique, beautiful and living self. OK, an elm tree is an elm tree but put a long row of them together and if you really look you can see the uniqueness of each, I suppose the individuality of each. Does that make sense?
Over the past month or so I have started about a dozen different post but life seems to keep getting in the way of me finishing them. A couple I am struggling with as they have deep and special meaning to me, messages I do want to share. I am going to try to be more diligent in getting them done and post more often.
I thank all for the prayers offer for my cousin Judy, please may they continue, I thank you
