~~~Gratitude~~~ Outside

Today is cold and blowing.  We got another few inches of snow last night.  It is hard to gauge how much because of the wind.  Some places it is 4 inches other spots it is 9 inches.  One might be tempted to just stay in bed on a frigid day like today.  Not us, though.  I am motivated to go outside by one wonderful Icelander, Runa.

And my DH gets outside to plow.  He actually really loves plowing!  

(Especially since he acquired electric heated gloves from LL Beans this year!)

I am grateful to live where the outdoors beckons.  And if I forget that I need to go I have this reminder on my door.  Going  Outside each day is more for me than just walking the dog.  Outside is the place I feel the most connected with all that is beyond me.  
It is where I become whole each day.

 You can see the finger smudges on the paper...somedays I need to connect with these word in a deeper way, by touching them as they touch my heart.

It IS a Beautiful Winter Day


years of anger following
hours that float idly down —
the blizzard
drifts its weight
deeper and deeper for three days
or sixty years, eh? Then
the sun! a clutter of
yellow and blue flakes —
Hairy looking trees stand out
in long alleys
over a wild solitude.
The man turns and there —
his solitary track stretched out
upon the world.

It is my intention, each Sunday, to share something that fills me with Gratitude. 
I write ~~~Gratitude~~~ with the wavy lines to represent the gratitude ENERGY~~~~~! 
I hope you will join me and share your gratitude moments. 
~~~Amen, Blessed Be, Namaste'~~~
