I’ve been the biggest baby here lately. Whining about the weather. Anxiously awaiting the arrival of Spring and inwardly hurrying it along in my mind. Willing it to come early. More like begging it to come early.
Quite frankly, I’ve become sick of all my wimping and whining. Today I am determined to find some wintry things to be thankful for. All this, in light of the fact that last night we got a terrible ice storm. Winds were gusting around 30 – 40 mph and freezing rain covered everything in a sheet of ice. The lights were flickering all night and we were all prepared to be rescued by my sister and her boyfriend and whisked off to his parents big house where they have a generator and lots of extra rooms. Yes, in spite of all that, I am going to be thankful for the following:
#1. Hot coffee warming my insides.
#2. Comfy slippers warming my toes.
#3. A snuggly robe over my fuzzy jammies.
#4. Warm food in my tummy.
#5. My family gathered around close. We spent last night playing board games and enjoying each others’ company while the wind howled outside our door.
#6. Space heaters that I pretend are warm and cozy fireplaces. 🙂
And finally, #7. The promise of Spring on the horizon!
