What You Wish For

Feb 17, 2014 | ideas & inspiration | 4 comments

thank you, pam

Chances are one in three we’ll have winter snow in the Midlands of South Carolina, something you may remember from the brief “weather event” we experienced two weeks ago. As we never saw a flake fall in the daylight, I put out there this wish all out prayer for an odds-beating second chance:

Let’s hold out for another snowstorm this year, one that arrives in the daylight so we can actually experience the magic and wonder of the snow as it falls.

Let’s pray for a snow miracle!

To my pure delight—and with apologies to all those who experienced the brunt of the accompanying ice—it happened.

My heart was giddy as I watched the snow fall. While it was no record-setter in terms of accumulation, it nevertheless brought so much of what I love about a good snow day: early morning quiet, followed by the joyful sounds of neighborhood children who collected in our front yard, anxious for a go at our sloping driveway.

It was a marvelous couple of days (for those of us with electricity). I am grateful.

      Thank you, Vickie!

    When there is snow on the ground for more than three days, it’s waiting for more.

      Didn’t know that one but I like it! I do know Ed, who is 88, said there would be three snows this winter. And I believe everything he says. There was some speculation that the biggest snow would come in March!

Hi. I’m Cathy.

This is a blog about writing, creative living, and grace in the everyday. It’s my hope this little spot on the internet will be for you a place of quiet and reflection, a source for inspiration, and a reminder there’s beauty all around—we simply need to keep our hearts open to see it. Thank you for being here with me.
