We get some weird weather here in the midwest. It can be eighty degrees one day then thirty the next as mother nature decides which season to make it day by day. Autumn is my favorite because of the beautiful colored leaves, cozy sweatshirts, and yummy treats. Winter has its beauty with the blankets of snow and the feeling of being in an old black and white movie.
I'm grateful to get to witness both today. I'm grateful to stay inside cozy and warm as we watch the first snow fall. I'm grateful to get to snuggle my baby as she begin to feel better. I'm grateful for a good strong heater and solid windows and doors to keep the chill out. I'm grateful to watch the peacefulness of the drifting snow as it falls. I'm grateful to get to incorporate some snow and ice into our science lessons this week. I'm grateful to roll with this lesson change even as it was "planned" for later in the year. I'm grateful for the way the red leaves really pop against the snow. I'm grateful for this day.
What takes your breath away? What sights of nature leave you in awe, even if you have seen it before? What is your favorite way to celebrate the first snow?
May today warm our bodies and hearts. May we cherish these beautiful moments nature gives and take the time to really see them. Have a beautiful day!
