How do you mend a broken heart?
Well, you think about your family, your children and the blessings that you have. Quite simply, life goes on... you just move on.
And that's exactly what I did last weekend. It was such a relief to get out and spend some quality time with my loved ones.
Last Saturday, we had our first snowstorm of the season. We canceled A.R's guitar lessons in the morning, and stayed home. By lunchtime, it stopped snowing. Mr. O took out the snow blower, and quickly cleared the sidewalk and driveway. He said the weather was nice, and suggested we take the boys tobogganing. What a splendid idea!
As you can see, it was a busy day at the neighbourhood park. Young and old were careening down the hill in sheer delight. Did you think I'd pass up the opportunity to relive my childhood? Believe me, I took many turns down the slope!
For most of the afternoon, there was an overcast sky but the sun finally came out. I was content to watch the kids toboggan; and thrilled to take pictures at the bottom of the hill. This is my favorite photo of the boys.
A week ago, I was inconsolable.
But there is hope - all I needed was my family.
And catching a glimpse of this view made me feel grateful....what a beautiful winter's day!
