Slow Snowy Day

Here in northern Wisconsin we have had a mere dusting of snow all winter long.

Today, we had a blizzard come through which shut everything down. All schools closed. Most businesses too. Everyone just stayed home.

I made a pot roast.

It simmered on the stove for hours.

My daughter layed on the couch and read.

My son went on a snowmobile ride with his Dad.

They met friends, had burgers, and even got on T.V.! The news wanted scenes of resilient northerners at play.

Lesson of Joy for Today

Savor the "Snow Days" in life. Little impromptu gems. Gifts of time when we least expect them. Slowing down, with no particular place to go, no one to impress, nothing to prove, can feel positively blissful.
