Are two-year-olds or newborns sweeter?
I can't decide.
For many, last week's snow storm wasn't considered a blessing. I remember life on the farm well enough to know that it causes a lot of work.
But when it is a weekend and all my family is snuggled indoors, I love seeing huge drifts swirl around the house.
Ed said that he had a perfect birthday on the Saturday of the storm - and with this as his view - who could blame him?
After it finally quit snowing, a friend from church helped to dig us out with his skidloader, saving Ed hours of shoveling time.
And made huge snow piles for the children.
I haven't been doing much more than holding down the couch these last weeks. With friends and family blessing us with meals, I've been spending my time enjoying the baby, reading to the children, and, of course, watching the snow. At this rate, I'll become lazy.
At three weeks old, our little one has gained two pounds already. Could she be
growing on kisses?
Yesterday Ed and the children spent a couple hours of sledding with their cousins.
While I enjoyed the sunset from the warmth of the indoors.
And counted blessings.
What are you grateful for today?
