It came as a surprise.
Turning our end of month, humdrum routine into a much needed and welcome break. it came.
The spring like Texas temperatures, the ones allowing me to enjoy my sun roof, dropped and took a change.
The text started coming through the phones to report..........NO SCHOOL!
I breathed in deep.
I didn't know how bad I needed this break.
This break STOPPED everything. No running around, no lessons, no school, no games.....................no WORK.
We turned on the fire and slept in late and relaxed. It was all ice...so no playing outside.
We just enjoyed and I seemed to rest...much needed rest.
Two days at home and then back to school to have another SURPRISE.
Back to school, back to lessons, back to work to have another drop in temperatures, this time with SNOW!!
Friday, around lunch, snow started falling.
What beautiful snow! What peaceful Snow!! What a wonderful, at home, relax and playful weekend. The text to come pick up kids from school, the canceled events were posted. We again enjoyed the break.
Our pregnant daughter-in-law took the picture as the whole family enjoyed the powder snow.
I love this one, he is wearing his mother's gloves. We don't get much snow so most families don't have gloves for their kids. These pink gloves made this a priceless picture of my first grandson Joshua.
My son-in-law won my heart again by taking Grandson David out to play.
Our pregnant daughter watched with her camera.
This is our active David, who cried and cried when he had to go inside.
Changes, unexpected changes, even if it is the weather, can breathe new life into a weary soul.
As I looked out over the white horizon I looked up and said, "Thanks Heavenly Father, I needed to see your beautiful handiwork." Spring is now just around the corner and again, I will enjoy His handiwork in the new life as it springs forth.
BREATHE............as we move toward the celebration of His Resurrection.
Weather is on......................more snow on it's way....another break?
