To those of you who have to dig your car out of nine feet of snow because life doesn't stop with wintry precipitation, I'm sorry. Snow is probably a nuisance to you. But down here, we all turn into children when we look out and see this and know that schools and many businesses are closed, and we have been gifted a day to just play and rest and sip hot chocolate. It's like a surprise extra Sabbath. And for teachers, it usually comes at just the right time--that time between Christmas Break and Spring Break, which seems to last forever.
There is nothing earth-shattering or heavy in this post. I only hope it serves to make us all grateful for the gifts that seem so ordinary we are apt to overlook or even be irritated by them. I hope you all find delight today. Oh, and if you are one of those people who is digging the car out of nine feet of snow this morning because you only get two weeks of warm weather during the summer, I give you permission to remind me of this post next July.
I think I'll brew another cuppa. My chilly bones need it today! Enjoy your day!
