Fresh Snow – a Monday Reflection

I woke up today – to this! And It puts a smile on my face, though I am not looking forward for days of winter of blistering cold and winds; but I must say fresh snowfall is somewhat therapeutic to my eyes. It’s so delicate and very fragile, whom one cannot touch or its beauty disappears into melt. Looking closely at the pine trees in our backyard, It felt like it was only meant to be seen and appreciated before it is gone.

This simple gesture of appreciating little things around me gives me happiness. I feel very thankful that I am able to see and to be able to do the things I love and be creative everyday.  Just like the fresh snowfall, I have to grasp and live every moment when I still can.

I believe that I was given the talent and an opportunity to share it. I will give the very best I could for people to enjoy it as much as I do.

How about you? Does winter have any therapeutic effect on you? What do you feel when you see snow on trees, the green and white colours? How does these make you feel? I’d like to know.
