The thermometer read 10 degrees this morning. The driveway was covered with a dusting of snow. Sunshine cascaded through the windows, and the sky sparkled a beautiful blue.
I bundled up and headed out to brush off the cars, push snow off the drive, and soak up the sunshine. My nose stung from the cold, but the fresh air and sun inspired me.
This year has been filled with small and big challenges for our family. We've laughed, cried, pouted and smiled. We keep saying that we are finished with 2013, but some of the hardest times were the ones that made us stronger. Some of the smallest events made us the happiest. We look forward to a new, fresh year.
May your 2014 be filled with health, happiness and love. Be grateful for every moment, small and big.
