I got up this morning as usual and began my drive into work. Less than half way there I had to pull over at a gas station as the driving conditions were really bad. I decided to turn back and go home rather than risk getting into an accident (I saw four accidents on the way home). I was greeted at the door by two very happy boys and puppy. We had a great snow day. The boys played football in the snow. They play football everywhere so why not in the snow right? :-) I helped them build a snowman, Dakota played in the snow, there was hot chocolate and tea, and after I post this there will be movie night with popcorn.
I didn’t plan on staying home today but it turned out good that I took a vacation day and stayed home. I would have missed so much fun with my boys. I enjoyed seeing Dakota run like crazy in the snow, watching my cats try to catch falling snowflakes through the window, and the smiles and laughter of my boys as they threw snow balls and scored snowy touchdowns. Maybe just maybe today’s snow was God’s way of saying stay home and enjoy some time with your family!
