Holiday Snow

We had our early snow in October, and now again, we have snow. It’s the day before Thanksgiving, but it looks more like Christmas outside to me.  We’re expecting another 10 inches or so.  My heart is so happy to sit inside my little cottage all snug and warm when it’s snowing and blowing outside. The fire is burning in the wood stove. My coffee is steaming in my mug. Silas is chattering away on the floor beside me and the Littles and Middles are playing upstairs together and their voices flow together over the balcony to my very happy ears. The Builder is working, but left with promises of an early return. And our oldest son is sleeping soundly in his own bed upstairs. We’re missing Kate, Allie and John, but this Mama is very content this snowy morning.
