You get some incredibly, amazingly,wonderfully fantastic news. What’s the first thing you do?
The first thing I’ll do is find out what the news is. Why is it so wonderful, if it happens to be something that makes me happy, I’d gather all my family and friends and celebrate it together.
The first thought that came to my mind was snow. These days all I can see from my window is snow and lots of it. I was thinking let me see did the guy block our driveway again.
You know what that means blocks of snow as hard as rock completely blocking ours and everyone elses’ driveway. You get up in the morning to enjoy tea or coffee and breakfast, but oh no you think of how you’re going to shovel this. So the pleasure of having breakfast is gone.
We turn on the T.V there is more bad news, we are expecting more of the white stuff, and it is going to be a blizzard, it will continue till the next day. What’s worse is the news there is another system getting ready to hit us.
I turn off the T.V. , I say nothing new snow again. Then the question pops up in my mind,will it ever stop?
The result of all this white stuff is the roads are narrow, the sidewalk is slippery, the mailman doesn’t bring any mail. There is nothing to look forward to,but heaps and heaps of the white stuff.
You no longer have to dream about a white Christmas but you might at this point change the lyrics and sing, “I’m dreaming of a green Christmas,where the tree tops are full of leaves and the children breathe a sigh of relief and say,”Oh look there is no snow anymore.”
Isn’t it lovely to see the gorgeous sun,the green grass and the colorful flowers and birds singing?
