I am grateful for snow.
Here in Arizona, we’ve had some morning temps that hit freezing, but it’s clear and sunny during the day and warms up nicely. My grandkids in Virginia, however, are getting ready for a few extra days off school because of a MASSIVE snow storm.
There’s something to be said for watching kids get all bundled up to go play in the snow. Those little faces, red from the cold. Their laughter as they throw snowballs at each other.
In fact, it’s not just kids. A few years ago, when Greg and I were on vacation in Switzerland, we made snow angels. Yeah … we were both over 50 and playing like a couple of kids in the snow.
We also spent a half day on the nearly deserted slopes of the alps before enjoying a warm beverage and snack.
Snow makes for beautiful pictures, too. I managed to get my dog to pose in front of a snow-laden tree after a storm. It was a challenge. All he wanted to do was jump and run and play in the winter wonderland.
A bonus moment of gratitude today: I am also VERY grateful I no longer have to shovel the snow … or drive in it … or cuddle under a blanket due to a snow-induced power outage.
There’s a whole world out there just waiting to be explored. Check it out in the winter when there’s snow on the ground.
