wishing for forever

Friday, January 13, 2012

The flakes fell in small clumps, so delicate and precise you could see each one's unique shape. Remembering how amazed I was when I discovered every snowflake was different at about six years old always makes me smile. And as the snow continued to fall, I experienced it from inside the car doors. I love the magical feeling of watching snow drift from the sky; covering the earth. It's as if nothing could ever be more beautiful.

As the car wheels traveled down the highway in destination of the hospital (grandpa's doing much better -- just needs rest), I find my eyes wandering toward the window. Iowan landscapes greet my peeking gaze. White blankets cover hills and rooftops. Colors standout against the snowy background. And it's finally winter.

With a day so full of smiles and laughter, sometimes I find myself wishing it could last forever.

have you gotten snow?

  11. We've gotten, like, two snowfalls at the end of which there were thin patches of snow here and there on the ground, which melted off the very next day. We've had an unusually warm winter this year... :)
