Fresh Snow!

Our world is covered in a soft fresh blanket of white. School is cancelled. There is quietness; stillness. Little princess came down and sleepily said, "Is all of this snow going to flood? Or is it just me?"
But still the snow falls soft and fluffy. It lands tiny particle upon tiny particle until there are mounds of the unique frostiness everywhere. I'm amazed.
A few days ago I mentioned my contemplations about letting go of what is good to pursue what is best. It's kind of like a blanket of new fresh snow, one thought lands upon another and another until you see a new perspective. So yesterday and today I have thought about procrastination. Procrastination today robs tomorrow of its intended share of joy.
Just thoughts drifting like this snow...let's see where they go.
Happy snowy day.
Love, Rachel

I really enjoyed this blog. It's a good reminder to me to let go of what's good for what's best. I like that. I needed to hear that today. I'm also enjoying this beautiful, snowy day.

Beautiful thoughts like beautiful snowflakes, each so different and unique..fall and like softly falling snow, create a beautiful attitude and thus a beautiful person. Don't you think? I do.
What a beautiful picture.

Hi Rachel,
What beautiful photos of the snow.

I agree with you on procrastination, but I must admit, it tends to be one of my weak points... but then again, it's hard when we've all got so much to do in our busy lives. I going to concentrate on just enjoying this beautiful day I have here ;)
