I’m feeling a connection with home this weekend. Can you tell which of these are from my yard in NH and which are from Provo, UT? Well, except for the dead giveaway of me being in the Provo ones. Getting snowed in at home is one of my very favorites: Often we’d lose power. We’d cook on a gas stove and eat by candlelight. We’d talk into the night and cuddle for warmth. Our little bit of snow in Utah this weekend might not be much compared to Nemo, but I love it. There is nothing more peaceful or more beautiful than a world washed clean in a layer of fresh snow.
I hope you are all safe and warm this weekend- and that wherever you are, you take a moment to be inspired by the beauty of nature.
On another note, if you’re up for a perspective changing story, read this (and watch the video). I’ve never met the mom, but she was three weeks away. She was so excited to start what she understood to be the most important role in her life. Somewhere in my tears I saw an incredible light. Right now, her faith is my goal – to be able to go through something that painful, that testing, and be able to find joy in it. That, to me, is more inspiring than all the beauty in this winter wonderland.
