My Thoughts On The Snow
Blame it on cancer, or whatever you will, but after learning that at least three close friends of mine lost loved ones this week, and I read other friends' blogs about cancer who are scared that each day might be their last, I have to share this quote (I made a slight winter adaptation above) I found last night on a lovely post here. People are going nuts here over the snow and it's immense inconveniences. Yes, I missed a doctor's appointment I really needed to have, and deadlines are being missed on work projects. Things are closed and it's annoying and inconvenient. Super Bowl travel is a super mess.
But it's beautiful. I've cooked more this week and spent more time in the pajama pants I got for Hanukkah than usual. I've slowed down, not texted while driving, and amused myself with all the stuff I have at home. Laughed with my mom about her energy to clean her oven. Smiled that my sister-in-law was overjoyed to spend every 9-5 moment with my nephew. Reminded that people are good as a total stranger got out of his warm car to push mine up the road the other day.
I can't help but think of those who have moved on up to the heavenly gorgeous skies this week. They're having a party and reminding us that they are okay. Throwing confetti down on us.
You can't change the weather, only your attitude.
I know it's a soapbox but it's my blog.
