A Winter Walk
Back in November It had been snowing all morning as I looked out of my window, and decided to go for my walk.
The landscape was in a shimmer of white, the snow lay glistening on the sidewalks, from the sun light reflecting off it.
There was an unusualness about this day like no other I had seen for awhile, there was no sound, no wind, just the endless whiteness from the snow.
Putting on my boots coat and cap, I opened my door, the air was fresh, surprising it was not to cold.
Kicking aside some snow that had drifted in front of the door, I took the path that lead into my neighborhood.
Seeing the white on the tree limbs, gave them a look of splendor, and the snow on the evergreens, conjured a early Christmas spirit.
I felt all alone in the world of white, with no clouds in the sky.
I just love the landscape after a recent snow fall, everything seems so pure and clean.
I wasn't sure how long I had been walking, maybe a little longer than I normally do, since my face was beginning to get cold.
Time to head home for some hot tea I reckon, I was so engrossed in the beauty of the day, part of me just wanted to keep walking.
I love the four seasons in Michigan, each one is a spectacle gift from God.
I appreciate the season more and more each year as I take my walks and see their beauty up close.
On walks like these I realize just how blessed I truly am, to be able to walk, and enjoy them at my age.
Until next time, God bless.
