Outside, there is snow on the Easter egg bush.
Just when I was about to take all the colorful plastic baubles off and pack them away, we got "zapped" with a new snowstorm.
It's April 4th, for goodness sake. The daffodils I saw sprouting must be frozen stalks of green and yellow by now.
Thinking back on all the events of the past weekend brings joy tinged with sadness.
There was a wonderful baptism of babies.
Family members, including our son and his family from far away, were all here and it was glorious.
Today, snow falls softly outside.
Beloved family members, including one of our darling little grand-babies, are gone.
The huge airplane took off with them in it.
It will take them away from us until who knows when?
There is immense joy, too, for the precious grand-babies who I can see frequently. For that, I am immensely grateful.
Hubs, knowing of my nostalgia, got a fire going in the fireplace (bless that sweet man) and I am tucked under a cranberry-colored velour blanket on the living room couch.
Soon I will be immersed in a few blissful, uninterrupted hours of reading.
Ahhhhh, time to remain in the sweet moment and savor it.
HOW DO YOU REMAIN IN THE MOMENT?
