Another snow day means another school day into June. Its irritating yes. Cleaning up the driveway sucks. I’m sure at some point the kids will be screaming at each other and things will get way more messy when Im already feeling behind. The snow never seems to end and it makes many of us, especially those with littles tired and weary.
But I’m thankful that we can stay home and our circumstances really aren’t that bad.
2007/2008 during another heavy year of snow I was constantly driving back and forth to Mason City because my mom was in a coma from a car accident. Sleeping on hospital couch beds, talking with specialists, sitting at her bedside with watch and wait for answers, the snow was the least of my worries. I don’t even remember it being a horrible winter.
While I’m ready to complain and make sarcastic jokes about this weather with the rest of you I’m also ok with watching the beauty in it. Because perspective shows it could very much be worse.
So I will stay home and Try to be thankful. Try because even when everyone is screaming, Im stepping on toys, the laundry and dishes pile grow as fast as the snow piles at least we can be here.
