The snow was beautiful today, it was light, fluffy and brought with it a warmer weather that made it a delight to walk from the mall to the car. When I got to the car U wasn’t so enthralled, In the short time I had been in the mall, the car was covered in a blanket of snow that obscured all the details, leaving just the outline of the Rav. The windows were in need of a good brushing, I’d also have to clear off the roof or the snow would fall and impede my view while driving. Guess where my gloves were?
Noooo you really don’t want to know what crossed my mind when I realized I’d have to move snow from the doors and windows prior to opening the door with my sleeve. =^_^= … the little crystals of snow, were dainty and fluffy, they were floating around like little feathers. I couldn’t help but appreciate their charm. That didn’t stop me from realizing that they would all dive into the car as soon as I opened the door. So be it. After all my gloves would be inside, then I could start the car, and come back out and clear the car, AND if I was lucky the brush with the long handle would be handy. … … …. It wasn’t.
The drive home was slow….. like turtles all in a row we crawled. Big trucks were turning and sliding around corners a seasoned winter driver, I knew to leave a car length between my car and the one in front,, more if I could. Those who didn’t chanced kissing bumpers. More than once I had to double brake to deal with the mush and greasy road surface. My adventure, its times like this that I talk to the Universe and count my blessings.
Life is to be enjoyed, and no matter what, I do my best to find the happy in whatever it is I’m living. Even if it is to walk into my “upset” room for a moment to vent, once I’ve done it, I can walk back out, close the door and move on. Expression is a gift, try to be as creative as you can, if you hold back the negative moment will fester, if you acknowledge it, and give it is due, the moment passes. Trust me, in life there is always balance, you can’t have “one” with out the other..
