After the driveway was cleared, I went to back porch to rock on the glider and watch the snow fall. Our dog, Mack, a chocolate lab, came up on the porch with me in order to receive some loving. After a few minutes Corban came around the house and we both tried to sled ride in the deep snow. We didn't have much success, and 30 minutes later Corban went inside.
I stayed outside and found a nearly 4 foot snow bank. I then got the snow shovel and dug down to the ground and made myself a little hole to lay in. Mack kept on charging in trying to lick me and lay on me, but other than that I just laid in my snow hole and watched the snow fall. It was quiet and calm. A nice break from the busyness of life.
As I sat in my snow hole I also thanked God for the life and the home that He blessed our family with. Its only been by His strength and provision that we have been blessed with so much.
If you haven't laid in a snow hole lately to contemplate on your blessings you still have time this winter. (if you live in an area where snow is) Just make sure you can get out of the hole once you've laid in it because I would hate to know that my suggestion led to your hypothermia. (Just sayin')
