The week before Christmas. The pace has been frantic with places to go and lists to cross off.
Overnight a special holiday gift arrived. The city is wrapped in sparkling white.
I stand at the window admiring the promise of something fresh and new as the radio announcer says the two words people all over town are hoping to hear, “Snow day”.
I sigh and release tension I hadn’t realized I was holding onto. My focus narrows as my mind moves inward.
Today is for home, for family, for me. Tomorrow the rush of the season and its obligations will resume; but today I have a snow day.
I finally have frost for the frosted window pane prompt of the Write Before Christmas!
