The first snowfall of the season can be a magical thing. In some ways it creates a fresh, clean, even sparkling world. Fallen leaves, dried and dead, are first sugar-coated and then completely vanish under the mounting flakes of white. Breathe in the cold, crisp air and be encouraged by the fresh start offered in a world wearing it’s coat of new fallen snow.
Today I will choose not bemoan the change in weather, nor will I gripe about traffic traveling at a slower pace or the dropping temperature. Maybe slowing down is beneficial! Today I will look with hope-filled eyes at the twinkling flakes of snow and imagine the good things which wait just ahead. Grumbling or gratitude? It’s up to us to choose.
Change is constant; changes come.
At first snowfall, I could say “ho hum!”
Or I could decide to enjoy the beauty.
Curse or blessing – what’ll you see?
May you choose to embrace this day as a new beginning for any area of your life that feels stagnant or stuck.
And feel free to send me a pretty photo of your first snowfall!
