It is snowing outside now. Yesterday, I thought that spring was on the way. There were so many robins in the trees, blue sky, no heavy coats and just a beautiful feeling out. Today the snow started and has not ended. It is cold and icy. But as the night fell and the sky became dark and there was a layer of white on the trees, the fence and ground, you could feel the calm that came with it. As I look out the window now I feel a sense of peace. A peace that I so need at times.
So, even though, the sunshine is the best for me, I can stop and appreciate what is right before me.

I am thankful that I can appreciate my surroundings
I am thankful for the silence
I am thankful that when I just went to answer the door for the UPS guy, it was my friend jon, who had finally got a full time job and was beaming and ready with the biggest hug while he asked for directions so he could deliver one of his first packages.
I am thankful that I made him smile
I am thankful for the life that I have
