This past week we had another snow storm. Although I might complain about being cold at times there is no doubt that there is a simple beauty about it. No picture can ever really capture it perfectly but I felt like sharing a few from around my home. I hope to be a better photographer some day but I’m hoping practice helps that!
I find it to be a fitting time of year to really look at the little things and appreciate what we have. I have been fortunate to be blessed with a family that is so loving and full of kindness. I have also been blessed to have enough resources to grow my own little family with my husband. We also found a home in a great location that needs some work but works perfect for us. Finding the simple joys in life is important always but even more so during the Christmas season. On this particular day I found great joy in being able to see the sun rise out the front door and make the snow glitter in its light. I may not be a morning person but this view is a reason to get up earlier in the morning.
I hope that the hectic Christmas season does not get to me and I hope that I can remember each day the little things that matter the most. I hope that I can help my children see life as a glass half full rather than a glass half empty. I also hope that they will help others and not get distracted by the various temptations lurking around every corner. There might be some hiccups along the way but if we can pick ourselves up and keep moving forward we can make good things happen. When I am feeling down I am always inspired by those people who have very little and still find time and resources to help others. I am truly thankful for those people.
