Snow Day… Again

Great pic courtesy of my brother here!

We’ve had bad weather her in Seattle yet again. It struck yesterday in the late afternoon with a vengeance. I usually pride myself in staying in front of such ugly weather and not getting in the traffic fray, but I was not so lucky last night. I spend two and a half hours traveling from my office to home. While sitting in my car for such a long time, I thought about how blessed I am. Even though I was in a messy traffic situation, I was safe and warm. These are a few other things I’m thankful for.

  1. A DH who loves me and shows it in many ways.

  2. A loving family that supports me.

  3. A good job that challenges me and helps me grow in ways that I wouldn’t otherwise.

  4. A warm house with electricity, gas, water, and sewer.

  5. Really great friends both near and far. I know some really amazing people and they bless me in more ways than I can express here.

  6. Cell phones that help keep me connected and make the commute go faster.

  7. My health. I’m also thankful that I can work out regularly and feel good about myself doing it.

  8. E-mail and blogs that keep me feeling connected to people I can’t see as often as I’d like.

  9. A piano in my living room, even though I don’t play nearly as often as I should.

  10. Access to great music, art, and programs that feed my soul.

Also loved the snow lovers. I'll have to get creative next time it snows around here. The last dump is almost all gone.
