So today God told me to appreciate.


So this morning I had an attitude adjustment given to me by the "Big Guy". And usually when I get one of these I try to listen. This is how my Sundays go. I get to read the Sunday paper in bed. In bed because I can spread it out and then circle things we may need or want then when Chris had time to look at it he can ask why or what.
Well I promised the fam I would make French toast for breakfast and they didn't go to church so I had to get up and make breakfast, still really not complaining, then I had to get my own paper, okay now I border on being-----. Anyhow I walked out to get the paper- now- I heard on the news it was foggy out. I like foggy days so I was expecting spooky fog, right? well in WI in Jan when you get for this is what you get- the pictures above really aren't fair to how beautiful it was. So since Im crabby I go out, open the gate and see the ice, I start to look around be really don't asppreciate what I see, I start thinking about the front porch and will I fall, is it slippery? Nope, I get the paper and turn around, again I start to kind of look around to see the pretty everything. What happens next- OMG- The neighbor next door, hes doing fair, has huge trees in his front yard, well all of a sudden it is snowing- but just in his front, It must have been a fog thingy but I was in awe. I had never seen something so amazing. It was so beautiful. I came in the house telling the kids to look outside and see the beauty. Then told them of the gift God had given me today. Telling me to be grateful for what I have. I really try to be, most times I am but sometimes I forget. Im happy He send reminders to me.
Enjoy the pics! and remember God always gives you what you need, maybe you just don't realize you do.
