A New Month

February is here, it came like this! Almost 8 inches of snow and higher in drifts. This is the first year in a long time I’ve had winter boots. I had forgotten how much fun it is to stomp around in the snow.

I miss my boys at times like these I wish I could snap my fingers and make them small again. I wish for those days of red noses, wet mittens and damp ‘boy’ hair smells, hot chocolate and getting warm by the fire. Those days went by so fast! And if I remember right I whined about them. How sad for me. I didn’t enjoy them to their full potential. I was more concerned with how often I would have mop up puddles and dry mittens than the fun the boys have.

Brings me to my knees. Most of my days are spent this way. Are yours? Are you living with joy and purpose every day that God gives you? I’m not. I’m going to start trying.

  1. Snow here too, on and off. The passes north, east and west require chains or are closed completely. I love it. Makes us slow down, doesn’t it? Makes us savor those moments you are missing right now. You are in one of those moments. Enjoy it.

  2. I think that’s one reason I’m really enjoying seasons. They seem to give a rhythm and a time to stop and enjoy the moment, something I have a hard time doing. But hey, when I can only get to work 2 days this week because of snow, I kinda have to stop 🙂
