We had an unexpected snow day today and I didn’t realize how childishly happy it would make me, but my heart jumped just a little tiny bit when I saw my first flakes out the window. It wasn’t what I had planned for my afternoon, but I was soon resigned to staying in and watching the “snow event” as the weatherman said.
A good snow is rare here in the valley, and being fortunate enough to stay home in it, made it perfect. All the childhood glee over snow returned and it didn’t have to be a hassle – I could put off chores until tomorrow and just watch little hopeflakes fall from the sky.
I am thinking about the new year, the fresh start, the hope and these snowflakes today were like magic I could catch on my tongue.
