Yesterday we woke up to this beautiful sight.
Not only was it beautiful because of the way it looked, but because of the miracle it produced.
CHURCH WAS CANCELLED.
I can't lie - I prayed for this very thing to happen. I know the Lord probably doesn't honor such sinful prayers, but in any case, my wish came true. I didn't have to sing that stupid solo in church.
We spent a wonderful, relaxing day together as a family at home. I organized all of Andrew's pictures from his entire life into an album. Yes, that is ONE album, singular. My, how digital cameras have changed things! I probably couldn't even fit the first 6 months of Eva's life into that same album.
We watched "It's a Wonderful Life," and, as usual, I had to fight back the tears on several occasions. I LOVE that movie. I think I might watch it again tonight, in fact.
Andrew took Eva out to play in the snow, and she loved it. They came in and had hot chocolate together; it was so cute.
I stared out the window for a while and watched the fat, puffy flakes fall down. Real snowflakes look nothing like the ones we cut out with paper. Maybe if I had a magnifying glass, I could find more simliarities other than just the color white.
We stayed in comfy clothes all day and just enjoyed being together.
I love days like yesterday.
