Snow Day

Well, it is snowing here in Tennessee. I love it!! We rarely get any snow, so this is really a big deal. We have close to six inches already, and it is suppose to snow some more tomorrow. Lovebug had therapy today from 3-4, it started really coming down while we were there. His mom had given us a ride there, it took us an hour and a half to get back home. The traffic was really bad. Thanks to God for getting us back home safely. After we got home, lovebug did not want to go in the apartment right away, he said I am going to clear some snow off of our car. I should have gotten a big clue right then, duh!! Of course, I was too busy being a mother hen, walking behind him, making sure he would not fall. All of a sudden, whack!! I was attacked by flying snowballs, courtesy of my dear lovebug. He started throwing them at me, faster and faster. He was laughing so hard, it was a beautiful sight to see. He has been through so much recently, seeing him act like a big kid, enjoying himself tremendously, touched me deeply. All of a sudden, he stopped throwing snowballs, pulled me very close to him, and gave me the sweetest, coldest, most loving snow kiss ever. Shortybear and Lovebug needed this childlike moment today, thanks Father.

Ohhh how precious & sweet Denise! The snow is so clean and pretty but it brings such problems...stay safe and warm. So glad your dmil took it slow and you made it safely home. You both deserve a break and to act like "kids"...young at heart. Cuddle & enJOY your time together staying warm as a Lovebug in a rug! Blessings, love & prayers...(hugs) Peggy

I think it makes us appreciate more when we don't get this all the time. I think it only snows like every 50 years [so, some people said] where I am. But what a fun time you both have and I'm glad that you are finding that joy even in those simple things. You both are awesome! And I pray for the Lord to strengthen you the more and protect you. Stay safe and warm!
