I grew up in the south.
We had snow.
Usually in January or February... and it usually only snowed a couple of inches- if we were lucky. We tended to get more ice, than snow. And any precipitation caused school closings and life stopped.
We live in the midwest now.
And we get SNOW!
Granted, this year it's a lot less than last. Definitely a more mild winter. Even with that, we've still gotten quite a bit of snow. And more snow than the south has seen yet!
I know, for some people, snow is not a reason to be thankful.
But for this southern girl, it truly is!
I'm thankful that when it snows, it reminds me of "though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow" (Isaiah 1:18).
I'm thankful that when it snows, it gives me a chance to spoil my children with hot chocolate, to lovingly help them get in and out of their snow clothes, and to capture the memories that are made!
I'm thankful that my kids get to experience a true winter!
I'm thankful that I get to experience a true winter! And more snow is suppose to come this weekend! We're all hoping it's true anyway!
What are you thankful for?
