The First Snow
I woke up this morning to see the ground white with falling snow. It's so beautiful.
No matter how old I get, the first snow always takes me back to my childhood and fond memories of either being in a classroom and glancing out the window to see the first snowflakes of the season, or snuggling under blankets at home with my family and pets anticipating how much we will get.
The first snow creates a warmth in my heart that is unparalleled by any other season, instantly setting a mood of quiet solitude and gratitude.
A blanket of white that muffles yet sings, dulls yet is bright, is cold yet warm, it's a beautiful reminder of the power and grace of Mother Nature.
Now, ask me how I will feel about snow in March? Haha! Another blog post will be written! :)
