Theres a moment in the middle of trying to survive the freezing cold and the horror and destruction of mass amounts of snow and ice. Its the moment that the snow first starts to fall.
It started to snow in Athens tonight and as I drove home from studying late at the SLC, I was in awe watching the snow fall. Its so white and fluffy and beautiful. My friend Deanna was being a pessimist and pointing out to me that it was basically just rain but I have decided to see it in a positive light at the moment. Snow falls differently then rain and therefore makes it more pleasant at the start. It feels like a little gift from God. It is just so peaceful and majestic 🙂 I LOVE IT!
When we got home I spent and extra minute outside just staring at the snow and I prayed and just thanked God for this little gift. I stood out there and felt my mom’s presence as I watched the snow. I know that she would have loved it. It reminds me of Gilmore Girls where Lorelei and Rory always take a walk in the first snow of the season. While this isn’t the first snow of the season, I felt it was appropriate to have my moment with my mom in the snow. It was a happy, peaceful moment.
Heres some fun old school pictures in the snow that my siblings will probably hate me for later…
