Taking It Slow

I woke up this morning to the sound of nothing but the howling winds blowing.  It was quiet all around.  No cars honking their horns while battling the traffic.  No hustle and bustle that the typical Monday morning brings.  I peek out of the window and take in the sight of the snow settled on the ground, on rooftops and tree branches.  The scene is breath taking.  The day has been interrupted  by the heavy blanket of snow.   But I actually feel calmer, like the pressure has been lifted and mother nature has given me the chance to take it slow today.  I love snow days like these...I get to bundle up at home, sip a cup of hot cocoa, and just be.  I welcome life's little interruptions sometimes because it gives me a chance to take a break from the normal daily grind.  These moments don't last forever.  Sooner or later, I know I'll have to go and shovel my car out of the snow and face the icy sidewalks.  But until I do, I will take it slow and enjoy the quiet on this snowy Monday morning.

See Beauty...
