Magical . . .

a blanket of snow
snow and ice and then more snow and more ice
our miniature spruce wearing a snowball on top

and then all decked out with a red ribbon

 and then the magic really happened
      as we awakened this morning to a world of white

listen to the national news
we made it
twin lake michigan
seventeen inches of snow
fell yesterday afternoon and into the night
to one and all
a loving heart is the truest wisdom
Charles Dickens

Love you, Lynne. Wanted to stop by your blog today and wish you a VERY merry and white Christmas. I see Mother Nature took care of the 'white' and I know that your family and friends will take care of the 'merry'. Such a joy knowing you and hope to see much more of you around this blogging world in the months and year ahead.... XOX... Diane
