On an early winter morning as you pause with shovel in hand, let the silent white blanket that covers your town remind you that every “curse” is a blessing in disguise.

* * *

It seems to me that we often, almost sulkily, reject the good that God offers us because, at the moment, we expect some other good.
–C.S. Lewis

Taking a page from the above statement, how do you feel when you see snow falling outside? Do you immediately think:
Oh no. And I have to drive to work in this stuff.

No you don’t. You can call in and say I’m not getting out of my driveway. Why not remember what it’s like to be a child when the snow came down? Remember how exited you were when school was canceled? Take a page from my wonderstruck entry
Why can’t you cancel work for one day? Everything you need to do will still be there tomorrow. Turn that snowstorm curse into a blessing. Go outside and be child like. Make snow angels. Have a snowball fight with a neighbor. Build that snowman. Work will still be there tomorrow. Go out and be silly!

Be Happy! Be Well! Be Positive!
