THE BEAUTY OF WINTER

THE BEAUTY OF WINTER

“I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.” – George Washington Carver

Sometimes I think my friends send me stuff with the hope they can see it on my blog.  This next piece happens to be a beautiful depiction of winter in the northern part of our country.  I lived for 35+ years in New York, traveled many times to visit relatives in Canada and have been out west to the Rockies during the winter months.  I remember how beautiful freshly fallen snow can look, but I also remember bundling up 5 children to go play in the snow, only to find within 1/2 hour, one of them has to go to the bathroom. I remember it getting pretty chaotic after the first “Mommy I have to go potty”.  It seemed like every 15 minutes someone else had to go potty and by the end of the day,  every pair of socks and pants the children owned were wet and hung in the basement to dry.  I miss the snow but only a little – I miss it when it is snowing and after the first snowfall.  I don’t miss driving in it, bundling up children to go play in it, or the mess it made when it began to melt.

About Mme Jocelyne

Hi, I'm a transplanted northerner–(born and raised in New York to French immigrants–Oui je parle Francais)-living in Florida for 20 years. In the 70's I worked as a realtor in the Bronx – City Island to be exact. Then I started a family and didn't keep up my license. I aspired to a career in architecture, so I went to New York Institute of Technology for three years, moved to Florida and finished my degree at the University of Florida in Gainesville. After 10 years of working in my dream career I sustained an injury to my shoulder. This injury never healed because I was constantly on the computer doing cad design. I finally decided to make a career change – something where I could use my training as an architect. Needless to say, I was worried – where will the money come from? How will I be able to afford my career change? But, I put my faith in God and went for it. It’s the best move I ever made, other than my husband, children and dogs.
