Today was a Storm Day and we woke up to a world of white. The backyard and deck were a perfect blanket of freshly fallen snow. Of course that didn’t last long when we turned the kids out to play with two friends from across the street. Soon there was a snow fort and tons of “footyprints” all over what had been a perfect, unblemished field of snow.

Sometimes life makes us feel like that slightly trampled backyard. Life had rumpled us and we wish that we could just make everything smooth and white and new again. Sometimes, new beginnings are as easy as the dawn of the next day. Sometimes, they require great effort on our part to make changes and forge new beginnings. Sometimes, life sweeps in like a snowstorm and makes a new beginning for us, just like today’s quote:

‘For each age is a dream that is dying,
Or one that is coming to birth.”

- O’Shaugnessy
