We have beautiful snow on the ground outside. I haven't been able to go out and take pictures, but if you want to see some, see my mom's blog.
It started snowing a little this morning, and by mid-afternoon, it was coming down in full flurries. I spent most of the afternoon with a fussy Maddy, but would peak out the window and enjoy watching big, wet, beautiful flakes as they fell from the sky. It wasn't such a beautiful sight for Michael, who had a very long ride home. You can read the details on his blog.
Now, I look out over the glistening snow. It is still 3 inches thick, and flurries are still meandering down occasionally. I don't know if it will be there in the morning, but it was nice to have a piece of magic, in the middle of a stressful holiday season. I am so glad to have Michael home in one piece, and no harm to him or the new car. I am glad that Maddy is finally on the mend, and that we are at home, and not at the hospital. I am also very grateful for small miracles, and for the Lord's help in allowing me to be aware of the small and large graces that He sends into my life.
