There are many things you can say about snow… its cold, its wet, its messy, its too deep, its too hard to see when it gets going good… You could say all these things, but why not also see the positives? Why not see the beauty? In our recent 3 feet of snow I could have seen many negatives and at times I think the biggest negative was being sore from digging out, but looking at the picture below I see something else…
I see the beauty in the snow falling softly. I see the birds using the snow as cover to come to the feeders and eat. I see quiet in the middle of a busy world (yes I know you hear quiet, but I can remember the quiet from this picture). I see the trees holding up all the snow powerful and strong. I see a beauty that is not in our world at other times. Snow can be calming, it can be relaxing, it can relieve stress, it can stop a world that is always to busy, to stressful, and to overworked. It reminds us and sometimes makes us slow down and remember that in this world where we live, we need to actually live. This snow gave hubby and I time to do a little living… living by loving on our pets, spending time together, getting some things done for us, taking some time to really rest without worrying about what was not getting done, watching the snow fall so peacefully at times we couldn’t help but to sigh and let ourselves relax. Snow can give you a different perspective and a different view of your own world.
