Let it Snow! Joy to the World! God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (and Women)!
I woke up to this today:
That's what I see when I open my front door. That's what I see from my couch while I'm sipping on my coffee, all bundled up with my favorite blanket and a good book. Might not look like much to you, but to me this is breathtaking!
I'm home alone this Saturday morning. My boys are visiting with family, my husband's off helping one of his friends move into a new home... I get the whole day to myself, so I'm taking a pit stop on my journey to enjoy my little Kentucky town's first official snowfall this winter.
My mother and I have decided to go out to dinner tonight. After dinner, we're going to see my cousin dance in The Nutcracker at the local theater. I am so excited about the prospects of this weekend, I can feel the positive energy flowing through my body. I feel electric, but relaxed at the same time.
There may be no real accumulation of snow on the ground, but there is an accumulation of abundant JOY in my heart. This is true beauty, and I'm going to sit here and enjoy it. I am gonna take this day in one moment at a time.
May you find joy this weekend! See you soon.
