What a Winter…Gratitude Reflection Day 21

It’s only December 23 and winter is in full swing…wild and crazy full swing, January like. We have had a major storm every weekend in December. Yesterday’s 40 degree thaw and rain has washed away all the snow, and we had about 9 inches of sonow to wash away…(so much for a “white Christmas”). Then last night about 2:00am the cold front hit. I mean literally hit, BAM, with 40 mile per hour wind gusts, maybe more. The whole house shook, mine, my neighbors, members of the parish. And the temperature dropped 30 degrees. It is bitterly cold outside and branches are blowing off the trees.

Today I am grateful for a warm house, for heat and electricity and lights. I hope you all are staying warm and safe…
