With Snow and Love

image

Ok! It’s finally beginning to feel like Winter around here! It’s feeling awfully Christmas-y today!

My crafty girls and I had our gift exchange today at our favorite coffee shop. We laughed out loud! Wow, that is such a good feeling! Feeling ten years old and giggling with your friends.

These girls get me. I love that.

When I came inside from taking random snow pictures (including the obligatory feet photo) they just smiled.
I said “You don’t have to understand my neurosis, you just have to love me through it.” And among nods and ‘yes’s there is the truth…
Just love me anyway.

Of course we talked about other things – sickness, hurt feelings, debt, worry, sadness…But mixed in with the hard stuff was good old fashioned belly laughs. The kind that make you smile to yourself for days afterward.

We’re blessed in this life, in this world of ours, that there are a million different ways to connect to people and an equal number of chances to do it. A little thing like embroidery brought me into this group, a big thing like love keeps me here.

Love on your people even when it’s hard. It is so worth it.
