Slice of Life Tuesday: Snow Day?

3 Comments

Slice of Life Small LogoIt’s the middle of February and much of the country had snow this winter, but we are still waiting for our ration here in South Bend. The east coast even had a blizzard in January, and Boston was supposed to get 8 more inches, according to the meteorologists. Currently my driveway has about 2 inches of white coating.

The weather forecasters are preparing TV viewers for 5-8 inches of snow in our area. Earlier today, it was snowing — big white flakes — for about an hour. This evening, it’s quiet again. I’m pretty sure unless the wind picks up or snow starts falling again soon that we WILL have school tomorrow. The media frenzy around snow days
Snow Day bookmust be big business. Personally, I’m ready for that early spring the groundhog predicted last week.

I’m planning to break out my favorite winter read aloud soon. When will it be a SNOW DAY? (Snow Day, by Lester Laminack, waits on the shelf, ready to go.)

Poor Birds!

I left school today depressed because of all the snow on the ground — again! Walking out the front doors, I looked and saw…some really FAT robins, hopping around in the parking lot. Poor birds! They must be so confused!

Poor birds in the snow, freezing

stupid snow again

When will we get back to spring?

Then I thought about something my mom said a long time ago; God will provide. So true! My depression turned to hope. If God can take care of these obviously needy birds, and he provides us a nice, warm home, then what do I have to do? Turn my frown around!

That’s just what I did!
