Do you like snow?

My son asked me the other day, "Do you like snow?"
Without even stopping to think, I heard myself say, "Yes." After I answered him, I thought about it. Then I agreed with my spontaneous answer. Snow is beautiful. Snow can be funny (check out these snowman pictures!) Snow gives us summer water. Snow makes my yard look great. It's fun to walk in falling snow. Snowstorms give me story ideas. Last week, I was able to WALK ON THE TOP CRUST OF SNOW, something I haven't been able to do since I was a kid! So snow can turn the clock back.
Some people complain about it. Does that make it go away?
No.
Enjoy what comes. Rain, sun, snow, cold, warm, hot, just take it in. Take in life. Find the joy.
What's your favorite weather like?

I love snow that falls soft and silent, making the whole world clean and pure. But, my favorite season is autumn, with it's smell of fallen leaves and apples on the tree. :)

Ah, yes, autumn is a charming time, the time I wanted to get married, but since I married a mountain man hunter, and fall is BIG hunting season, I would have had to get married by myself... and that just doesn't work. So June wedding, autumn walks in the woods. It's all good!

Why would you make a strawberry taste like a pineapple? Just get a pineapple.
