The Tranquility of Snow

Yesterday, we awoke to about an inch and a half of beautiful, heavy snow covering everything but the roads and sidewalks. Snow brings with it a natural hush and an invitation to slow down: I drank my coffee slower; I sat longer looking outside; I began my day a little later than normal.

Snow is a contemplative gift – a natural invitation to breathe deeper and go about the normal activities of the day a little slower. The beauty of snow covered branches bending toward the ground cheers my soul and makes me say (more than once): thank you!
