The First Snow

From out of the corner of my eye I could see something moving in the window. I went to look outside and there it was, big fluffy snowflakes. They fell so peacefully, quietly falling to the earth like soft blessings. A very welcome sight after a heavy week of dealing with a terrible cold. I know that so many people hate the snow as they endlessly complain about it and they even devise big plans of how they are going to run away from it. But I look at winter and snow as a time to turn inward and enjoy the quiet solitude that it naturally brings into life. It reminds me of the many phases we go through along our journey. The quicker we learn to embrace instead of fight against everything, the quicker we will grow and move along our path without so much resistance.

I am going to embrace this season and enjoy the beauty it brings with it.
