Let It Snow

emily-january-2009-richmond-0153God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change . . . .

That’s the way I feel about snow.

Yes, it is pretty when it first falls.  But, Currier & Ives made lovely prints and I can find photographs any time I miss the snow (can’t remember the last time that happened).

Okay, not to be totally grumpy. . . . . I can see the beauty outside my window right now (see picture to the left). 

Courage to change the things I can . . .

I’ll be planting flowers soon!

And the wisdom to know the difference . . .

Waiting for spring is so sweet (especially when it is coming soon, very soon!). Let it snow. I’ve got a warm house, plenty to keep me busy inside it, and my husband staying home, too.

I am blessed.
