For those of you who know and love Frozen will right away recognize the title of this post. 🙂 When in true actuality, as much as I love snow, I could do without the ice and freezing weather!
As I sit writing this post, I can hear ice sheets dropping on my roof. It’s such a scary sensation listening to it, but it just makes me feel very grateful:
Grateful for the roof over my head
Grateful for heat and electricity when so many are out
Grateful for the extra time to get caught up on schoolwork because activities were canceled
Look at that! Three more items to add to my 1000 gifts list! Well, I hope you all stay warm and dry tonight–and trying counting some of your gifts. It always makes me smile.
Chilly winds on an icy night,
Whip the trees around.
Icicles falling–terrorizing those that see
Them crashing to the ground.
Who knows what damage this ice may do–
Who knows who else he’ll strike.
He bends the trees till they touch the ground;
Crackling as they go;
But if you glance out and see
The sparkle and the light,
The promise of a newness of life
That will come with dawn of spring.
