Cherry Blossoms AND snow ? !

I woke shortly before 7am this morning, and turned my head towards the window.  Confusion set in when I saw something white and fluffy falling from the sky.  Surely I must still be dreaming. It only snowed once all winter here, how could it be snowing in mid-April?  But, I WAS awake.. and it was dumping!  Quickly I got everyone up (yes, even my 18 year old) to go outside to "play".  I realized that I would expend all my energy in the hour that I may be outside, but it was worth it. This was MY time.

We started to shovel the driveway (because to me, that's very entertaining for me!) but quickly realized that this unforecast snow would most likely turn to rain so we had to focus our efforts on snowman building.   Julianna wanted to make her own, so we helped her make her little version of the snowman.
I think I need to move to a place that snows all winter long.  How life-giving for me today!  I apologize to all those people who like Spring and Summer (yuk) .. but today was for ME!
Truly an amazing morning.. and Kirk (who has snuck out before 7am to meet a friend for coffee) brought me a coffee back once we had all retreated back indoors to dry off (yes, it's melting already).  Now if only I could just stay home and relax the rest of the day, unfortunately, it's filled with doc appointments 60 minutes away, with a lot of rushing around.. that's okay.  This day has had a glorious start!

    Your children are beautiful, such a blessing. And the tree is beautiful as well, spring brings new life, (thank you Lord for the diversion). So glad you got to play outside with your children.
    God bless!!

    I have to laugh at today's posting. If you want winter year-round, just come to Calgary. I would even trade free board for snow shoveling ! We had over 10" last night - beautiful this morning but it quickly turned to slush. Unfortunately it's still on the ground and they are calling for more. My husband's snow blower wouldn't even pick it up, it was too heavy.
    I admire and love your pink blossoms - sure beats white !

    Enjoy your spring - glad to hear you were able to go out and enjoy the snow.
