Snow Day 2015

      I have no greater joy in my life than being the wife to Adam and
 the mommy to these precious girls!

  Man of my dreams and wonderful Daddy

Can't wait to watch these two follow the path that God has laid out for them.

I love the snow, I have always loved the snow.  As a child, I used to love to get bundled up, call up my buddies and brave the high hills in my neighborhood.  In college I can remember sitting in my warm apartment with great friends, watching "You've Got Mail" and drinking delicious coffee.  Now as a mom I loved dressing my girls matching mittens, jackets and hats as they create their own memories in the snow.

The snow came in with beautiful, wonderful white flakes, but it was a little unexpectedly and not without its hassles.  As we woke to snow, school closed and streets covered, I had to make a choice.  Like most situations in life, I had to make a choice to react with joy and happiness or with anger and frustration.  I could either look at it as another day "stuck" in the house with my girls or  I could look at it as a time to stay in our pj's a little longer and enjoy extra cuddles.  I could walk around the house snapping at my children for every little child like "mistake" they made or I could focus on making fun memories with my girls.  I was not perfect in staying positive during this impromptu winter break, but I did try to let the positives far out weigh the negatives.  So the next time you are faced with an unexpected, unplanned and possible frustrating situation, instead of choosing disappointment and anger....CHOOSE JOY!!
