“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.
