"Winter, a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moments,
embark upon a sentimental journey,
and enjoy every idle hour." ~ John Boswell
Remember that last post when I mentioned I was done with snow...
It seems I typed too soon.
Several inches of that
messy beautiful white stuff kept us home for a couple of days. Sleeping in with my loves, unlimited coffee, days at home...I'm not complaining. It snowed for what seemed like forever. Finally, it stopped and the loveliness slowly started to melt away...and our yard turned to mush.
Which, to a certain three year old, is perfection.
And then...the sun returned. It was beautiful and bright and warm. That's the kind of weather that makes us girls happy.
My big girl had been asking to paint...it is one of our favorite things. Since the weather was so nice, we carried all of our supplies outside and two little girlies painted to their hearts' desire in that beautiful sunshine. When we paint, nothing is off limits...apparently.
Walking on dirt roads is another favorite thing. This is the road I grew up on...the road where my parents live. Now my girls play on this road. I adore the country ♥
I also adore pretty little braids on my teeny tiny girl.
Isn't it amazing how something as simple as collecting eggs from the backyard can be so special. I love our evenings together. The sun setting through the trees, the animals free ranging and exploring, lovely little moments with my favorites...
I can get frustrated with the daily grind, depressed by the daily news...but I try to remind myself to focus on the good, to find the beauty, to dwell on the meaningful because each and every moment is a gift. Life itself is a miracle. I thank God daily for His mercy, His faithfulness, His showers of blessings. Despite all that's wrong in the world, there is still hope and light and so much for which to be thankful ♥
We hope you had a blessed and beautiful week!
