I have put together a short video of a few pictures I took today following our snow and ice storm… very beautiful!
It seems as though winter is upon us early this year and lots of people are grumbling about that, but not my great niece Lindsay. This is the first time Lindsay has seen the snow and look at the JOY!
Lindsay’s Mom, Nathalia, married my nephew John Paul and they moved to the United States from Costa Rica so there are so many new and wonder-filled experiences happening like this one.
It brings tears to my eyes to see the Joy in these pictures and the Joy in this new family. I am so proud of my nephew and of his new wife. I had the pleasure of meeting Nathalia recently in person, after getting to know her through the gift of Facebook and it was confirmed how amazing this woman is. She is kind, strong, courageous and will soon be a mother again as she and John Paul are expecting. How joyous to watch the gift of family expanding in so many wonderful ways.
I feel blessed that I get to watch this love unfold and to see the joy in my nephew’s world. Here is his exact words about the joy of Lindsay in the snow:
“To be young again… She’s making me remember :-)”….. Ah and the circle of life continues….
And a family wouldn’t be complete without a pet right? Here is little Donny the Dog experiencing winter for the first time and the caption with this picture was “What is Winter?” How cute is that right?
I wish for all to see the gift of life itself in each and every day.
