Family, shelter, clean water, and enough food.
And then last week we were blessed with a blanket of glistening white snow. I woke early and peeked outside to see this! And for the next 7 days we were given this gift of being snowed in, and I felt like my heart rate just slowed a bit. I was able to unhurriedly savor the simple, precious moments that usually go by so fast. Everyday gifts like a fresh fallen snow.
Seeing my husband play in the snow and get creative with the kids...
Pausing to reflect and celebrate the Advent. These quiet moments on a wintry night just before bed are so special.
A fireplace to keep us warm. Stockings, hand stitched with love from Nana.
And a miracle on the way.
