Gratituesday: Snow

I really want to get back into the habit of writing a Gratituesday post each week. I have SO MUCH to be thankful for!! (we all do! After all, God tells us to be thankful in everything!) It's just a matter of remembering it AND finding time to type on TUESDAY LOL).

Anyway, this week, in the spirit of "in all things give thanks", I am thankful for snow. We have SO MUCH of it around here (not at all normal for our area). And yet, it's meant lots of cozy days together as a family. It's meant lots of fresh air and exercise for the kids (and hubby, all that shoveling!). It's SO BEAUTIFUL!!! We've lived here for almost 2 years, and still I am daily blown away by the views out my windows! So much land, trees, ponds . . . SO MUCH of God's wonderful, amazing nature, right on my doorstep! And right now that amazing, beautiful nature is all white sparkling snow and it's just beyond breathtaking!

So, while I know many people are struggling in many ways because of all the snow we've had (lost revenue for businesses, lost income for employees who couldn't get to work, people who went without power for days . . .), I'm still so thankful for the beauty of the snow God has sent us this winter!

See all the Gratituesday posts here.

Ps. Speaking of God's Beautiful Nature, you have a few more hours to enter my giveaway for an amazing Butterfly notebooking (and so much more) pack here.

Enjoy it for me, as snow just doesn't come my way. :)
