OK, I love snow, LOVE snow. The ice was a decent substitute. I was in a grateful mode. Gratefulness gives me the will to breathe. And I have been blessed. So blessed.
Though in the past, I would have been so disappointed that we did not get snow, I was just grateful that when Shah first here we had two weeks of snow days before our wedding. I’d not trade those days for anything. I hope Zoya gets her first snow this year, but for now the ice was beautiful, and I still have my memories with Shah.
I loved being confined to the house. I’m realizing, despite my blogging and preaching and trying to purposefully rest, it is still taking an inch of ice or a fever to get me to really REST!
New job starts very soon, but once I get things going, I AM TAKING A VACATION! I used all my vacation days when Shah died and have been afraid to use any since then. I have not been practicing what I preached. It’s time.
