Thankful Thursday



Thankful today for the Snow-mageddon, or Snowzilla, or Snowcation...whatever you might call it.  That last few days slowed things down quite a bit.  It gave us time for books, conversation, lazy afternoons, cooking, baking, and time together.  

It was grand.  

Now we are in the thaw, with school back to a regular schedule and all activities on track.  Right back on the treadmill of life.  

We have to be thankful for the moments we are given, even if they come with cold temperatures.

  1. Hello, looks like you had same snow storm that we got. 21 inches of the white stuff. Sometimes it is nice to slow down. I am thankful for the thaw! Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

  2. The word 'thaw' sounds so appealing. But you got a beautiful photo out of all that snow. Have a wonderful Thursday.

  3. I know it's not fun to live through a snowstorm and its aftermath, but it sure is pretty!

  4. I love your attitude about winter! Snow is such a magical thing that nature gives us and yes, it is cold but like you say, it makes us slow down and enjoy life. Great post.

  12. It certainly left us almost as quickly as it came. Seems like a typical up and down Kentucky winter. xo Laura

  14. Love the shot! And the thoughts. Our slow down is really LONG.. but even I was inspired by everyone else's reactions to the snow throughput the country. Reminded me of things we get accustomed to (like snow! It's part of life half the year) and don't always see the beauty in.

  24. That's a nice capture of the snow crystals on the fence line. This is my first warm winter (with most of the rest of my winters spent in northern Minnesota it's quite a treat!) and I am enjoying others' wintery photos vicariously. So pretty in a picture!
