Snow — fun, beautiful, and cold!

Spoiler Alert : nothing profound or thought-provoking here – just fun!

We just had our first snow of the season in East Tennessee.  The mountains received significantly more than we did in the valley, but it was still pretty as it covered the grass and laid softly on the leaves and branches in the back yard.  When I looked out the window and saw the first snow, I was reminded of a video I made of Snickers and Cuddles as they ran in the snow wearing their yellow slickers, complete with reflector strip across their back end, in case they get lost at night!  

We adopted them from Young Williams Animal Shelter here in Knoxville.  Bill always says that they “won the lottery” when we brought them home with us, but I believe that we were the winners in those transactions when you think of all the joy and love they provide on a daily basis.

Here is the video — please bear with it for about 9 seconds and you will see them come streaking in from the right side of the screen.  Cuddles is the one with her tail curved over her back – Snickers has the straighter tail.  The video always brings a smile to my face.  I hope you enjoy it as well.

Happy New Year and, if you have snow, enjoy it before you have to start shoveling your way out of it!  I know shoveling can be a bear, but enjoy the beauty for a little while.  Please don’t let the obligation to get going eliminate your appreciation of the beauty of God’s creation, even in a little snowflake.  

Blessings to you today, and throughout the new year.

  1. Thank you for sharing this! Be careful in that snow and ice! Adopted and rescued pets are the best! There is a little brown dog on my lap right now we got from the humane society. She was so scared and now she is so happy and filled with unconditional love! Blessings for your weekend!
