I Hope Snow Never Loses its Magic

I grew up in Texas.  Snow was discussed like a fabled story.  It would happen maybe once a year and it cause all kinds of responses.  Joy, wonder, fun and the best one, "School may be cancelled".  I look back when this fabled story happened to me as a child.  Growing up, I seem to remember the feeling that the world stopped and enjoyed this little gift, unless you were driving.  Then you said a little prayer and hope that no one would crash into you or you into them.

Now I live in New Mexico, where snow isn't a fabled story, it is just a part of life.  It happens all the time. The weathermen discusses it like any other day.  The mountains fill themselves with this white, fluffy stuff and that's it.  It's a fact, not fiction.  A couple of days ago I was walking to my car and it was snowing.  The 2nd time this year.  I fear it will lose it's charm.  The world here doesn't stop and enjoy this gift.  It just keeps going, I hope I continue to remember how magical snow is.  To enjoy making snowmen and having snowball fights, or my personal favorite, curl up in blankets with a knitting project, a good movie and watching the snow; watch the kids and animals play and enjoy it.  I hope it never loses its magic.

"Praise the Lord, everything he has created, everything in all his kingdom.

Let all that I am praise the Lord."

Psalm 103:22  NLT 

Kina is also rather enjoying getting the chance to cuddle with Mommy and Daddy!
