I don’t really want to blog about the weather, but I woke up to about 4 inches of snow on the ground and it has continued to snow all morning. I planned to go to Tai Chi class but decided that riding my stationary bike for 30 minutes would do the trick for today. This is the most exercise I’ve gotten since my husband Steve was diagnosed with cancer about a month ago. The picture here is called Snow Storm because it’s a picture of the snow outside my family room window and my grandson Storm is looking out. Just a few days ago I posted pictures of my flower garden in the front yard and it was so spring-like. Now we are slammed with snow. I can’t help but see this as a metaphor for life. We make preparations (I had my garden tilled, I fertilized the lawn, I planted flowers, I pulled weeds) for life events, and then things don’t exactly turn out like we expected. What’s that saying? “Life is what happens when you are making other plans.” So true. However, there is goodness in the snow. It will add moisture to the grass and flowers so they will grow better. Adversity helps us grow. It’s just uncomfortable while it’s happening.
Steve is feeling great today and is planning to finally get the taxes done, before midnight.
