First snow

And just like that, life changes.


It’s snowed here all day.


We have plenty of autumn left, but it will blend so gently with winter from here on out.


This marks the beginning of the quiet.

The snow falling outside of my window naturally slows my heart.


This is beginning of the season of light and warmth.

I love our life, our traditions.


Like Santa leaving new slippers on the day of the first snow.


Like warm fires and cocoa and blankets and movies.

Somehow, the snow tucks us in and makes us safe.  I feel a peace today that I have been seeking for days.

I’m ready for the change.  Different seasons help different parts of us grow.  They each seem to come just at the right time.
