Oh, you came like a winter snow
Quiet and soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below.
Songwriter, Audrey Assad
I don’t know why the snow has made me happy. Maybe it’s the beauty of everything covered with snow. The sky is clear and so blue. My husband and our sons are out shoveling the driveway, clearing the cars and laughing. Hot chocolate is simmering on the stove. I hear my daughter shrieking because my oldest son finally managed to pelt her with a snowball when she came to the door. I know in another town a little three-year old boy who I won’t see today is having a ball laughing and playing in the snow. Ahh, the sounds of a snowy day.
I finished the machine embroidery on the hoodie. Now it’s time to put it all together.
I’m undecided at the moment. Do I make the fruitcakes or mix up a couple of more types of cookies?
Ahh, a winter snow!
