It’s December in my neck of the woods, which means our little houses bear frosty windows and snowy yards. Many New Englanders welcome more fluffy snow and iced windshields. Snowplows hurriedly push banks of snow as the drivers survive on coffee and adrenaline.Excited scampering dogs play and kick in the fluff, while warm kitty cats slumber by the crackling fire.
While working in school, it snowed all day. Magical glittery sheets of snow fell while teachers and children went about their day. Children were drawn to the windows as a snow globe scene played for them. Excited school children tugged on boots, wrestled with snow pants and hot mittens and hats preparing for recess , a chance to play and romp .White blankets wrapped the earth in warmth while restless winter birds fluttered about, looking for seeds.
After the final bell, determined teachers plowed through paths of snow, as children kicked it and attempted making snow balls. The parking lot was filled with gloved people cleaning off mounds of snow, scraping windshields to see.Plows raced through streets and the school driveway scooping it up, while tired school buses creeped in its path.
I love snow this time of year for Christmas isn’t Christmas without it! It envelopes our corner of the world in a sparkling lane of frost. As I drove home, white branches and trees and roads greeted me. It was a picture of beauty, it’s essence in its simplicity, mother nature’s gift to all who can appreciate it. I thank God for it and pray that drivers are safe on the roads in it.

All My Best,
