Mother Nature blessed us with 6 inches of snow this weekend, and in the middle of the storm our car broke down, so I was forced to try and either buy a new car or repair our old car, neither of which were convenient with snow on the ground.
I found myself in a bad mood, stressed, worried, and the fact I was on call for the hospital only made things worse. I just kept thinking: "Doesn't Mother Nature know I have stuff to do this weekend?!" After The Reluctant Farmer and I got home, I went outside with the dogs and it was then that I took a moment to look at the beauty surrounding me. I realized it's all about perspective. I was upset by all of the things that I couldn't do, yet when I looked over at my dachshund I realized things could be much worse. I could have been an 8 inch tall wiener dog that was expected to pee in 6 inches of snow! And, if Happy Wiener wasn't going to complain, I figured I couldn't either. He wasn't bitter or angry, he just kept trudging along wagging his tail.
I needed a reminder that soon enough spring will be here and then the hot days of August, and at that point I will miss the silence and solstice that the snow brought me. I will miss the excuse it gave me to slow down.
I hope you were able to enjoy the beauty of the weekend as well folks...
