Snow seems to be the big buzz word around our neck of the woods lately. Every morning at the local gas station, you can hear comments such as “I’m so tired of shoveling.” or “I can’t believe were getting hit again!” Yes, snow can be a nuisance and I am also guilty as charged for throwing the complaints out on the issue. Then I recalled something my Grandfather use to say, “Rebecca, you need to take time to stop and smell the Roses.” OK, I know there are no Roses out now (or anything else for that matter) but it was the thought to….stop. Stop complaining about the predicament but embrace and enjoy it. Instead of smelling the Roses I built a snow man. I have to admit that some (ok most) would consider me to old to be playing in the snow, but boy did I enjoy it. For the whole hour I was out there, not once did I think of a bill to be paid or what was going to be for dinner. So for now, when it snows, I’m going to do my best to stop complaining and “Smell the Roses”.
