This Moment

From my office window this second, I see snow. The ground is covered. The tree limbs are white. The kids' swing in the big oak is the only thing moving outside besides the flurries. I could do without snow.

Let me enjoy: This first sip of coffee in the morning. Always my favorite.

What else to enjoy?  Holding my eight-year-old's hand. Staring eye-to-eye with my oldest daughter. Every morsel of gourmet food my husband makes, despite the mess in the kitchen. Placing my head on the pillow at the end of the day.

I'll try enjoying this snow, too. I dislike cold, but I like the quiet and the slowing down.

  1. This is lovely, Jennifer. We're expecting snow here tomorrow, and I'll probably be having the same thoughts as you. : )


Brave soul to make a comment. Wink.
