We had our first snow of the season today. I don't think I was quite ready for it! Snow used to be a lot of fun when we were kids, I think. When we lived in Regina, we used to build enormous snow forts, or more like snow caves. We could disappear for days, and the cold never seemed to bother us. (And this was Regina!)
How different things get when you grow up! Today, my first thought was that I'd have to scrape off my car. And then I got in and slid all over the road, which hadn't yet been plowed or sanded. And it was foggy, and I could hardly see a thing. And it made me all, gr.
So I kind of wish I was a kid again. Because a lot of things were a lot more fun.

Aw! Sorry you're not enjoying the first snowfall. Ya the first snowfall here wasn't as magical as I was hoping, mostly because there were just teeny snowflakes and they didn't stick but still. I think maybe your memories of snow caves could be a beautiful example of what Jesus wanted us to understand about having a childlike faith though-finding joy in the sometimes seemingly miserable events of life.
Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes! Haha guess what I'm listening to. Anyway, thanks for posting!
