Savored Moments…

 

Yesterday…I drove to work…in a Winter Wonderland…oh…there was no snow…but…the frost was so heavy…that the evergreens were as white as flocked Christmas trees…

As beautiful as that was…the interesting thing was…the fog…they called it…a freezing fog…which I suppose was responsible for the heavy-duty frosting…I’m not exactly sure of the phenomenon that brought it all about…being as I’m not a…meteorologist…and…I haven’t played one on TV…I just know…it was beautiful…it was eerie…it was quiet…it was peaceful…it was cold

It took several hours for that…frosty fog…or…foggy frost…to burn away…but…when it did…it was a delightfully sunny day…warm…even…and I so appreciated the sunshine…

Bertha…said…it reminds her of life…mine in particular…that things are always changing…and…although…I can’t hold on to life…any more than the frost could hold on once the sun came out…that…I can savor the moments as they come…and…then…savor the ones that take their place…

Savoring…

Frosted Roses…

It’s inevitable…it happens every fall…and…yet…it still saddens me…the frost that gets my roses…it’s like the proof…winter is coming…things are changing…

Last week was the first week that we’ve had consistent frosts…morning after morning…and…they were heavy…they not only got the roses…the hydrangeas…the asparagus fern…the hostas…were nipped in the bud…as well…

But…Bertha…reminds me…the frost also got the golden rod…the culprit behind my itchy eyes the last couple of months…and that is a good thing…a very good thing…

She says it’s a lot like my life…there’s always something good…in every situation…I just have to be open…and let it in…

Examples from my life flood my mind…time and time again…good things came out of what I thought was a tragedy…okay…I acknowledge it…she’s right…

It’s just sometimes…I really just want roses to stop and smell…without getting frostbite…
