The Bliss of Being

After the Gilding

It was amazing in Michigan this past week! We had several warm days that melted all but the most stubborn snow. Then there came a night of rain followed by a dawn of sleet and freezing rain, with even occasional hail!

So on March 23rd we awoke to an unexpected “snow day” meaning no school for my boys! This was a pleasant surprise and after they crunched through the yard breaking the icy glass-looking grass under their feet, they marveled at the surrounding wonderland. The trees looked like they were made of the finest crystal. The roads were like a hockey rink, but as they thawed in the sunshine, the view was breathtaking. Diamonds scattered and twinkling on every surface!

To top it off, it was my eldest’s birthday – what a gift – a shiny star-studded landscape …and no school! Remember this. Breathe it in.
