White Blessings!

God always seems to know exactly what I need and when I need it!  Now, I know that to most people a little snow, or should I say white slush and ice that looks like snow, is nothing to get all worked up about, but in Georgia the world stops! Schools closed, the base shut down, and our town went silent; it was a snow day! For us this exciting snow, or ice day, meant staying in our pajamas all day and spending some much needed quality family time. My husband and I got to sleep in, which was so nice. We had a great family breakfast well, more like brunch. My children packed on the layers and out they went to play in the slush. My son opened the door and with his bright red face grinning from ear to ear said, “Mom, this is a blast….Our slide is SO fast with ice on it”.  I could not help but smile and laugh as I began to video them running around the back yard. They played until they were frozen and then came in to warm up by the fire. We then played dance central as a family, which is quite funny to watch my five year old shacking his hips to.  By the end of the day I felt relaxed and completely blessed to have this unexpected day to spend with my family. It’s days like this that I know God is reminding me to soak in the blessings he has given me and never let one day go by when I do not treasure the amazing gifts I have been given!

  1. That's so neat your kids got to enjoy the unusual snow! We had snow days this week in Kansas too. But it's not so unusual for us!

    I see that your family is very similar to mine. I have an 8 y.o. daughter, 5 y.o. son, 3 y.o. son and a daughter in heaven since 5/10/2010.

    Praying God's blessings upon you and your family as you journey beyond the loss of your sweet baby girl! Thank you for your sweet comment and visit to our blog.

  2. How fun! We are a little north of you in Tennessee and we almost never get any either. However, this year we have been inundated already!

    I know what it was like to lose. 5 miscarriages and one crib death after 7 weeks.
