It's the Month of LOVE!

My goal for this month is to blog everyday - because I love to BLOG - and to write about something that I love. I am taking a page from my friend Steph's book and keeping it positive!
I am one of those strange people that love winter. I really do. I love to watch the snow as it drifts down from Heaven. I love the glorious, pristine white of the snow when it is still fresh. I even love that crispness in the air that makes my cheeks all rosy.
I enjoy playing in the snow with my children. Watching them frolick and play as they enjoy a snow day is one of my favorite things. I love the joy in their voice as they whisper the most magical of all words...."SNOW"....
I love warming up after I have been out in the snow. I love throwing my children's snowsuits right in the dryer and the warm, clean smell when they are dry. I love sharing a hot cocoa with Posh as she chats happily about her trek into the winter wonderland.
I know that there is a lot about winter that many of us don't like, myself included, but today, I wanted to embrace those things that I love.

I'm not the only one in my family with a love of the winter. Last week, Sporty brought home the following poem from school. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

I run outside.
I watch snowflakes form
a frosty blanket
on everything in sight.
In the light of the dawn,
a shimmering quilt of diamonds
covers the landscape.
Gleaming icicles decorate the snowy trees
as snowflakes swirl down to the ground.
As the sky gets brighter
the wonder of winter becomes
a world of glistening snow.
I will never forget
this wintery wonderland!

I swear to you POSITIVE this year is the way to go...don't get me wrong I have yucky days, but a month into this year, and I can honestly say I feel so much better.

By they way I LOVE the snow too...and man do I miss it. Beautiful poem.

Wow....seems like someone got mommy's talent for writing... :) Beautifully written! And your positive-ness is infectious! :) :) :) I've been trying to be a lot more positive as of late. It used to be that when I was younger, I never had a problem seeing the bright side...since having been on my own, though, I've had a fairly bleak outlook on life. The other day I made the conscious choice to go back to being positive...and now I think I'll have to keep coming back to your blog, because it inspires me to be even MORE positive! :)
