Watching the falling snow is somewhat calming, while it turns the outdoors white, the indoors can feel warm and cozy.
As the snow fell, I was wondering if the driveway would be so bad that I would have a hard time backing out to get to church in the morning. Then I looked out the window and saw someone shoveling my driveway - what a surprise. The man who lives across the street had shoveled his driveway a little earlier, and I noticed he was clearing mine. What a nice neighbor! It pays to make friends with a few neighbors - you never know when you might need one, or want to do a favor for them.
This neighbor is in a profession well known to me (the job I retired from) and works at the same place I used to work. I am glad he bought the house across the street where my friend used to live (before she passed away), and his two daughters are the cutest.
God put a few helpers in my world, but I never know when they are going to show up. I always have something to look forward to. I am no longer looking backward. The past is the past and I move forward at my own pace, but always forward. A new day, a new tomorrow to experience.
