Nice write, Lori. They say “A picture is worth a thousand words”. Well your words conjured up many vivid mental pictures.
Really enjoyed the read.
Reminded me of an incident earlier this winter.
Icy ice and icy snow. I was out to get groceries, and as I was walking across the parking lot I stepped on a patch of icy snow and began doing the “Matrix”, arms swinging, legs flaying every which way, then boom, I was sitting in some very wet snow. A young girl was close by, her hand over her mouth trying desperately not to laugh, she said: “I’ve never seen anyone move so fast and not get anywhere.” I smiled and chuckled, got up and dusted off the icy snow and move on. None the less, I do love the snow and wintry weather.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.
