Often I have stared in wonder,
at the beauty of a blanket of snow over the distant farmland.
Hoar frost on the trees bring new life to the dead, brown colored season
...like dressing for a wedding...
where everyone wears white in celebration.
Today is April 30th,
A day where we would celebrate the birthdays of Uncle Bobby and Grandma Allison.
Most of my world has been anticipating Spring...
but the weather peeks in with a warm day once in a while tempting us with the warm desires of summer,
and wearing almost less than a layer of clothing..
We suffer the pain of more snow,
of grueling winds of the Alberta Foothills.
And another blanket to be worn upon the earth for just a bit longer.
I think that is what I will do this weekend...
Cover up and stay warm with my new Hudson's Bay Blanket.
I will watch the snow fall and dream of a wedding...
