inspiration monday


one of the "hazards" of living in north florida is that this little wooden snow angel is probably as close as we're going to get to having a white Christmas.  and while i know in my head that most of you have been pounded with several feet of the powdery white stuff and are cold and miserable...in my midwestern heart, snow is supposed to go with Christmas.  kinda like Rudolph goes with Santa, kissing goes with mistletoe, and chestnuts go with an open fire...snow goes with Christmas.   i have so many wonderful childhood memories of making snow angels, having snowball fights, and of course, the neighborhood snowman building contests.  it took us thirty minutes to get bundled up for a ten minute stay outside, but mom always had the hot chocolate ready when we scurried back inside, and somehow that seemed to make our frozen hands and nose worth the effort.   
so, i guess what i'm saying here is that, well, i miss the snow.  and to answer your question...yes, i'm crazy.

Hey Lori,

I know what you mean. I grew up in the Northeast, and went to college in central Ohio - I miss the snow and the mess. But then I woke up this morning in North Carolina and it was 24 degrees out. Then I was thinking, "maybe I don't miss it all THAT much!"

But an afternoon of the white stuff would be nice at this time of year...

Merry Christmas!

Lori, You are not crazy. I once lived in Nevada and although they have been hit with snow this year it is a rarity. I also lived in Arizona, Phoenix to be exact, and the hardest part was not having snow on Christmas or at all during winter. I did miss it. We have snow on the ground here, but mostly it is ice....it's cold and I envy your warmth, but then I'd miss the snow.
Have a wonderful Holdiay dear lady,
Merry christmas and a joyous New Year to you and yours, Tess
