It has been cold , windy and now snowing. A person posted some flowers growing in her home located in the South. I posted it was nice to see the flowers and how cold it was here. She is originally from Pittsburgh and expected her response to be something like that is why I am glad I am not there. Instead her response gave me a chance to do some reflection. She said ” I would trade it for family and friends in a New York minute. Never thought I would miss SNOW!”
When I paused to think about it she was right. I am very fortunate I have my children here and within 45 minutes of me. I have friends some new and some I have known for many years. The culture of the area is one I truly enjoy.
Thanksgiving will soon be here. This is the traditional day to count our blessings but I like to count them every day. My family and friends are a blessing I count every day.
That being said this is the look outside my window. It is 24 degrees with a real feel of 11 degrees. At least it is the weekend and I have food and shelter..life is good
