Even In The Winter

I've been writing a lot of blogs about snow lately and with good reason.  Where I live - Erie, Pa - is the number one city for snowfall in the United States this year.  We have A LOT of snow.  To go along with that, we have an unusually COLD winter.  Many people are tired of winter, snow, and cold.  But as I've mentioned before, I'm usually a go-with-a-flow kind of person.  Things are what they are, I work around it.  Especially when it comes to things like weather.  I can't change it so I accept it and work with it.  My love of life continues no matter what the weather.

One of the wonderful gifts that comes with snow and cold is the beauty.  When it's very cold out, the snow crystalizes and it just sparkles... especially at night.  The other evening as I was walking to my car
after visiting a friend, the beauty stopped me in my tracks.  It literally took my breath away.  The snow was more beautiful than sparkling diamonds.  I felt like I was in the middle of a Norman Rockwell Christmas card.

Now, don't be a "hater".  Try looking at life with new eyes and a fresh perspective.  Yes, winter can be cold.  Yes, depending on where you live you can experience a lot of snow.  But if you just LOOK, you can and will see beauty all around you... even in snow... even in the winter.

Love, Paula
