Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things,
but just look what they can do when they stick together.
-Vista M. Kelly
As the snow began to stick and pile up today this quote really settled in my heart. Life, like snowflakes, is fragile, fleeting, and magical to behold.
Whether you have family, or have created your own through marriage or community, we must stick together. As one person we simply cannot do it all. We can't make everyone happy, we can't be in two places at once, we can't work and play at the same time (there are exceptions, yes; this is a general statement). However, we must reach out and ask for help, be present in out interactions and just plain be open to life.
Today, as the snow fell I decided we were going to play in the snow. It was cold, we got wet, but we giggled and had fun. As a family too, we all went outside. Not for long, I think we spent more time getting ready, but hey it was part of the experience right? My husband rolls his eyes, but whenever we leave the house I tell Miss Bit we are going on a adventure. Life is just that for us. Who cares if it is just grocery shopping, it will be fun because it is something we chose to do as a family. In the end, we went outside twice to play in the snow, ate grilled cheese and tomato soup, built forts, napped and cuddled. The best way to spend this snowy Saturday!!
I hope everyone is staying warm and safe :)
be inspired. love authentically. live boldly.
