like fresh snow

What I appreciate about winter in Wisconsin is that each snow fall provides a blank slate, a new fresh cover, a do-over. Just like fresh snow, a new year is un-marked, without tracks, lovely & clean - all laid out before you. Soon enough tracks will appear like the rabbit & kitty tracks I spy from our upper windows.....paths that meander, paths that move purposely, paths that appear to go no-where in particular, and paths that go home to the barn or covered brush.

As I awoke this morning, I felt blessed to again receive a year. I am thoughtful in this moment where I lay my first track.....because just like fresh snow, it is waiting.

Happy New Year...

Happy New Year! It's snowing here too, clean slate :) I'm thankful because my husband retires this year and I know he will never deploy again! Take care and stay warm.

Happy New Year, Kari! I love your sentiments.
I drove past your place on Friday as I was going to pick up a spinning wheel close by. I was so tempted to stop but I had been in a slight accident early in the day and I just wanted to get the wheel and head back to the parsonage.

Wishing you ALL the best in this New Year.
