What a difference an hour can make in anyone's life. In an hour the world can shift on its axis and life as you know it will never be the same again. Of course we all know it's not even a hour at times, it could be minutes or a matter of seconds. That's why it's so very important to enjoy the moments as they come to you.
This morning the snow was beautiful and soft. The blue light coming through the gray clouds was something that I have not seen in a very long time. Possibly 1993? I'm not a snow girl - I don't really like it, I think it's messy and troublesome, and it keeps me from doing things that I enjoy. But today, I just loved the fluffy flakes drifting through the trees and loved looking at the drifts of snow piled on the delicate dogwood branches. And I especially loved sipping coffee and eating hot cinnamon twists my brother cooked for breakfast.
Now it's melted off and green again* - there are flurries in the gusting wind. By the end of the week it will be in the 70's again. This is spring in the south. Ever changing and surprising. March came in like a lion today and I suspect it will bring a beautiful Easter next month.
Hope you're having a beautiful Sunday.
*update: it's snowing softly again - this time not as heavy and it will not stick. But it's peaceful and lovely - perfect for this quiet Sunday.
