It’s the first snow of the season! It seems whenever I have to have surgery and recovery it’s in the winter and I get to enjoy the first snow fall from inside my parents house.
I know many aren’t fans of the snow, mostly because of having to clean up and drive in it. However, if you take a moment and just watch it fall and take a deep breath in, I always get a sense of newness and a cool fresh smell.
When there’s lots of snow and you can see it ‘pileup’ it makes every thing sparkling white and to me it is so very pretty. I love to be the first one to put out footprints in the new snow, it’s almost like marking it as my snow LOL
My birthday is in January and I will tell everyone I’m a winter girl because I do love the snow. I was born during an ice storm and since then there was never snow on the exact day of my birthday. I laugh because snow the day before or after doesn’t count to me. Excitedly when I had a birthday that was one of those ‘decade’ ones it finally snowed. Not Just any snow but a Blizzard!!
A blizzard that left the snow down for days and most roads and businesses closed. That’s the best kind because y’all can stay home and then go out and play in the snow. LOL I was so full of the giggles cause it was finally snow on my birthday. I went out to make a snow angel but forgot how soft the snow was and just fell into it LMAO I made a snow dent. There were kids out playing and I helped them in a snowball fight, even made one and tried to save it in the freezer. It was a fun day and a very memorable birthday xox
Many of my friends and family aren’t fans of Snow, some will move south to avoid it and others will use the word hate towards it. I say, embrace the snow, remember back to when you had snowball fights, made snow angels, enjoyed hot chocolate watching it fall. You can also take a moment and think of it this way ~ snow melts and provides needed moisture to the land, land that without moisture can not grow the crops of food that you eat. As a “Jersey Girl,” from the Garden State of NJ, I appreciate this thought as I drive around and see the many farms of my neighbors.
Just my thoughts on the first snow of the year for me, going back to the window to watch it fall some more xoxo
