Snow Day

As we awoke today we were greeted with an unexpected sight, snow glorious snow. The kitchen was filled instantly with shouts of glee and jubilant laughter. Breakfast was scarfed and school plans quickly cast asunder as the first winter adventure of the year unfolded. The supplies were gathered and soon everyone was retrofitted for frosty fun. This was the baby's first snow and his face was alight with childhood wonder. His world is still so fresh and unblemished, much like our morning gift.

I am continually thankful for these small children who quietly whisper to my soul, reminding me daily just how achingly beautiful the world still is.

The snow was a much needed present, an unplanned respite from our ever busier schedule. We filled our day with snow angels, rosy cheeks and heaps of joy. Just the way I like it!
