A White Christmas

I thought I would take a moment to show you what my world looks like on Christmas. My whole entire life I have wondered what a real White Christmas would be like.

Now all I have to do is put on my 47 layers of clothes, my woolen socks and my insulated water proof boots. Then I wrap my neck in a woolen scarf and put my hat on my head.

I open the door to my balcony and walk outside to look over the frozen lake and the snow covered cabins and trees.

I wander outside and up the path to see the beauty of the winter wonderland all around me.

The magic of the snow and the cold takes over my imagination. I begin to daydream that I am in an old Christmas Movie or even one of Robert Frost Poems.

Dust of Snow

The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snowFrom a hemlock tree
Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.
Robert Lee Frost

It brightens my spirit and warms my soul. It freezes my nose and brings to my face a flush of rose.

I search in each patch of trees and cache of brush for some sign of life and some beat of heart.

Then I hear a crunch of ice and the soft whush of snow. I see the doe before she sees me.

Another peaks out at me from the trees.

And there in the afternoon light are two beautiful works of God's hand bedded down.

I walk away feeling enlightened, refreshed and not so alone.
Merry Christmas to all.
