First Snow

Dear First Snowfall,

Thank you for your clean slate, your blank canvas, your permission to begin fresh. I have spent the past 4 days releasing stress, stepping back from the edge, aligning myself with my inner truth. Today, with your clean consent, I can sparkle again. I can kick up your white fluff as I walk more serenely down the path of my choosing. There's love down that path, you know. And I suspect alot of beauty, as well. Adventure, for sure. And bliss of a nature I have yet to imagine. It's a fresh world ahead, First Snowfall. Crisp and warm all at once.

{Thank you beautiful ladies for your encouraging, lovely comments while I was half way to crazy. Each of your souls sparkles with joy. How lucky am I?}

edit: little did I know, the snow lasted for only one day and the lack of stress, the same. :(


  1. Hi there sweetie, gladd to see you up and running again (don't run that fast, you might slip into the snow). Keep the spirit up girl. And let all the fresh whites of the snow wash you clean....Hugs.

  2. It's very pretty. It does give one a feeling of a fresh start too. We all need that every now and again.

    Mmmmm, snow! I can't for the first taste!

  7. Snow! Hooray! We had a bit today in the Mountains of Oregon, too...but it melted off. Still cold tonight though :)
    Snow always seems to hold things together for me...it is a time of pulling inward and cleaning out (much more than spring is, for me)
    sending love love love and love,

  9. We're lucky to have you! First snowfall is stunning.

  10. I haven't had my snow here as yet,so thanks for sharing this beautiful outlook on the wintery days to come.

  11. I dream of days like this....so beautiful thankyou.
    Hugs Lynn xxxx
