Snowstorms cause us to slow down a bit. Maybe we can stay at home and take a much needed nap or write an email or note to a friend whom we lost contact with. Perhaps we can play a board game with our children, watch a movie that we always wanted to see but never had time to do it.
Snowstorms are times for much needed Sabbath. Taking time for ourselves without feeling guilty.
We are so burdened by work, projects, timelines, and deadlines we forget how much fun life can be.
When I was sledding with my children yesterday I felt like 5 years old again frolicking and falling in the snow. Surely by day number 2 at home most of us will get cabin fever, but for now, stop and enjoy the white puffy stuff falling from heaven!
