I have been very quiet over the last several months with the writing of my jlog. I don’t have a good reason except for the fact that I have procrastinated in putting my fingers to my iPad and hence the lack of posts over the last few months. As I was sitting at my desk looking out at the weather we are having, it hit me to put my digits on the keyboard and write a few thoughts regarding the snow I am seeing as I write this.
I have used my snow blower 8 times this year to my joy of cranking on the rope and hearing the sound of power. There are some in Colorado who are groaning at the thought of more snow. Not me. I have reveled in every day it has snowed with the expectation that I might get to start up my power plowed—snowblower that is. I do not have the irrational thought that I will get to use it one more time. The weather report blew that thought out the window. But the beauty of seeing water in white form fall softly to the earth is a wonder that I haven’t gotten over.
On this journey, we have the choice to look at our circumstances from a negative or a positive perspective. We can groan at our circumstances and wish things were different, or we can look at the beauty before us and appreciate the blessings that are right before our eyes. I choose today to look at what’s positive.
