My Professional Background - Once upon a time, I wanted to be a motivational speaker. Actually, I was a professional motivational speaker for about 5 years.:
It’s weird to live in a place where snow just isn’t a big deal. Where we’re from in Georgia, a snow day is almost as thrilling as a Honey Boo Boo sighting.

Operation Bananagrams, Honey Boo Boo


Still reeling from that one.

We got pounded with about ten inches of snow last Saturday night, and no one else in Kansas or Missouri seems to think it’s out of the ordinary.


I’m supposed to be wearing sundresses and sandals already. (Just not white ones yet. Because my mama raised me right.)

We spent Palm Sunday holed up again because the snow was still coming down when we would ordinarily leave for church. And also because the four of us still have this sneezing, runny nose, coughing, sore throat thing that is bad enough that one of us visited the emergency room last week.

But I won’t relive that for you. (You can watch the video.)

As I watched the snow flurries trickle down and amass into a blanket of pure, white beauty, I couldn’t help but think of my favorite childhood photo of me in the snow. It was taken on a ski trip I took with a childhood friend, and it perfectly captured my feelings about the snow—both as a child and now that I have children of my own.

Snow Bunnies

I’m the beauty queen on the left. The overstuffed one with a bowl cut who looks like she just spent the whole day drinking Pepto-Bismol and making snow devils.

Don’t ask.

And look at my happy friend in all her snow bunny cuteness. She even has bunnies on her hat, for goodness’ sake! Look at the joy on her sweet face as she stands there in the beautiful, white(ish) snow.

By the way this is how MOST children feel about the snow…

Snow Angel

even my own.

Snow Gaze

I wasn’t most children.

I did and still do despise the cold.

Almost as much as I despise having a cold. Or Bleeding Esophageal Verices.

(She just can’t shut up about it, can she?)

Fortunately, I do think the snow should melt away by Easter morning so we can spend the day at church pondering the glorious resurrection of Jesus, whose blood “washed me white as snow.”

And now I feel kinda bad for being such a snow hater.

Snow Devil
