It's a snowy Monday in this part of the world. I found today, since I was out there twice involved in the task, shoveling is a good time for reflection. Thoughts seem to arrange themselves better when your body is busy exerting itself elsewhere! Crisp, cool air helps to clear the mind, and the rhythmic motion seems to bring calm. Except of course, when your sweet little three-year old is "helping", which is, in fact, at cross purposes, dumping snow back upon the cleared areas.

Life has major twists and turns, doesn't it? Things you never imagined you would deal with. Full of gifts and losses. Sometimes the losses are unbearable. Changing directions and finding a way to fill the incredible hole left... Amazing how difficult it can be to move forward. To find a way to function around the hole. Even to see all the positive things that still surround you. To see the lifeline and grab on to it, when what you really want is what you lost.
