A winter storm is blowing in. The sky is a miserably bland gray, and wind has been gusting hard all day. And the squirrels and birds are swarming the feeders in our yard. The weather people think it will snow for the next four days.
But we are warm and snug in our home, with a good supply of fuzzy socks and comfy blankets & sweaters, and all the fixins for plenty of hot chocolate. The fireplace still doesn't work (sigh), but the soup pot does. I love warm, yummy soup! And hot, buttery rolls! We have everything we need (and want!) to enjoy the coming snow. We even have good winter coats and boots, not to mention an overwhelming stash of gloves, mittens, hats, scarves and snow pants. And the snow-ball maker the kids got for Christmas.
We will not only be safe and snug, we will venture out and get cold - on purpose - and have fun in the snow, and then scurry back in to the warmth and comfort of the house and cuddle up with a mug of hot chocolate. And make paper snowflakes to decorate the dining room. Lots of paper snowflakes.
Today, I am thankful for warmth and comfort during Winter.
What are you blessed with today?
