November 15 and a snow day

Straight out of the iPhone

My alarm went off at 6 this morning, per usual if I’m not going to the gym. I started to get up and then remembered we had a two-hour delay this morning (which turned into an actual school canceling SNOW DAY!) So I rolled over and went back to sleep. My children are 28, 27, and 22. The only one this really impacted was Shawn, who is a teacher. But that didn’t stop me from enjoying the first snow day of the season. And, when your teacher-son is also an excellent chef and makes you poached eggs and ham for breakfast? #win

Social media is blown up about this snow day with leaves still on the trees. All I have to say is…it’s Northern Virginia…it will be in the 70’s in a week. But I did love the snow today. I wandered around the parking lot at church and checked out the critter prints in the snow. There were a lot of them. And it was quiet. Everything-has-a-gorgeous-blanket-of-white quiet. I stood out in the middle of it and let the stillness seep into my bones to carry with me.

Cuz y’all, it’s been tough lately. This whole change thing that I’ve been talking about that God has been talking to me about is hard. And scary. And frustrating. And moving too quickly. And taking forever. And I keep losing my cool over it. I needed the snow today. To remind me that it’s all good. And it’s all going to work out just fine.

In the meantime, I am working on all my lists for Christmas: gifts, food, decorating, parties, outings, all of it. I’m finding a peace in the all the lists. Lists make my heart calm and happy. How about you? List person? If so, handwritten or on some sort of a device? Surprisingly enough, I’m a handwritten note girl. As I work on my notes this week, I’ll share some. Would love to see some of your notes and planning sheets and ideas, too. Until then…

See Y’all tomorrow.
