It’s been a very cold few days for us here in the north east. The snow came down heavily with winds blowing and after 24 hrs we had icy grounds.
Today the sun is shining and the snow has been pushed aside by snow blowers, shovels and snow plows, leaving behind mini mountains of hardened snow along the sides of roads, sidewalks and driveways.
And despite the cold there is a beauty to it all.
For those of us that have a roof over our heads, warm clothes on our backs, and food to eat, we know we are truly blessed.
I know tomorrow is not guaranteed and that there are many more obstacles coming up this year, but for the moment, on this bitter cold yet sunny morning, I reflect on the good things and potential great opportunities this year has in store for all of us.
Wishing you and yours safety and health.
