A few random musings on snow days .... and kid sick days. I do not ever hope for my children to be ill, nor do I ever hope for the roads to be impassable. However, theses things do happen from time to time and they do disrupt our schedules and our plans. (sometimes a lot, sometimes not)
But here is what I LOVE about the disruption of our schedules and plans. We slow down, we become more present to the needs of ourselves and of those around us, we laugh a little more because we are not thinking about the next thing on our to-do lists. It is no secret to you that I am a big fan of sloooooowing down. It is in this space we become more aware, and that awareness is our greatest teacher.
So enjoy your snow day, build a snowman, make a snow angel, go sledding, read a book, snuggle a child (furry or not!) OR simply do whatever feeds your soul.
