the happy days of winter.

So I've heard that quite a few people are distraught and rather unhappy about the snow....their fretting isn't seeming to cease. Coming from my previous entry, it's actually quite encouraging to have snow on my birthday....even if it is little inconvenient. Everything is white, clean, and perfect...minus the Fahrenheit scale of course. It makes for a perfect excuse to cuddle up with a warm cup of tea (or hot chocolate if you must) and just relax. Take the day in as it comes. I find that on so many days, the hours go by like a freight train and I never give thought to the wonderful life that is around me. Whoosh, and those moments are gone, never to come again. Sometimes life gives you a moment where you CAN relax, sit back, and watch the beauty that God has created. I am guilty of "being" in life, but not "living" life. There's a huge difference, but I guess you might have to experience that for yourself. I pray that everyone is safe in this weather and that you are ENJOYING IT TO THE HILT.

"Advice is like snow- the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks, the more it soaks into the mind."
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
