Making Lemonade...

I have been in a mood off and on all week. Last night, I went to bed earlier than the kids, and my husband did bedtime. I'm not sure I even told them goodnight, but I knew it would be better to be absent than to fight through an impatient and unhappy bedtime.

 When I woke up this morning, it was to snow. Inches and inches of snow. School cancelled and happy kids and I wanted to cry. The snow; the gray skies; the endless winter; it's enough. This was my backyard three days ago...

This is my backyard today...

These happy kids though, their spirits are contagious and their smiles are healing. They couldn't wait to go out and play. They are truly happy no matter the season. I'm taking a lesson from them and making these lemons that Mother Nature has given us, and making lemonade. As I'm typing this, I'm watching my boys throw snowballs back and forth. I'm hearing their laughter through the windows and I can't help but laugh with them.

My girls are planning a nail painting session with me. We made homemade cinnamon rolls and the blankets are ready to be snuggled in for a Barbie movie marathon.

This season we're in, it won't last forever. We'll look back and say remember when we had that snowstorm in April? 

Bring on the lemons.
