A Little Perspective

Few things elicit excitement in this house like those four little words....
              IT'S A SNOW DAY!
 Amazing what those words have the power to do!
Suddenly the dynamics have shifted and normal is adjusted according.

My kids don't know this.....but I consider it  a compliment that they'd rather be home than go to school!

After all they don't sit and watch movies all day.....
We reinvent play as we bake, dust and vacuum,and do the barn chores.
Of course theirs always time to curl up with a book,paint,crochet and dig out all those toys that don't appear quite as often any more!

The appeal seems to be in the gleam of possibility and the unknown.

Makes me thankful for the unknown, because if I knew all that was to transpire in a given day or week, I would either become too self assured and not trust, or I'd become fearful and anxious.

So thank-you God for snow days. When plans take a detour and we learn to say " not my will, but Thine be done."

                    my ten year old still likes to play...

             oatmeal valentine cookies we made ...

        my wintery sill...

 I couldn't resist...bringing out  my tulips, 

love the white, with the  snow.

        two things cannot be in one place...
                 where you tend a rose,
         a thistle cannot grow.( The Secret Garden)

  1. Sounds like so much fun Lucy.
    Enjoy your snow day with your darlings.
    The dresser full of stuffed animals reminded me of when our oldest was young...his bed had hardly any room for him in it!
    Oh those were the days...sweet memories of days that went by too fast.
    It looks like a beautiful winter wonderland where you are.
    What a great way to spend the day....with the ones you love.
    Big warm winter hugs to you!

    All my heart,
    Deborah xoxo

  2. Lucy, living in Minnesota is very much like where you live. Having snow days can be so much fun with the sliding, making snowmen, throwing snowballs, and of course, making hot chocolate. Thank you for sharing, it has helped me gain a new perspective today when looking out at all the snow. August
