Dear Mother Nature,
I am writing you in regards to the recent 6" of the white stuff that you have dumped on my area in Michigan. I would like to take back my wish for snow (wish made 11/28/08) and replace it for my wish for -- Getting my garden ready, walking my dog, playing ball with the family in the yard and just sitting outside sipping ice tea, the smell of the grill fired up and just plan relaxing.
I know that this can be irritating always trying to please but as I am renewed I am ready for winter to break so that I can take time for myself doing the things that I love to do. I suggest you do the same. It is time for this season to melt away and to bring new and wonderous things onto my world..and the rest. New life, blossoms of flowers and leaves to remind us to stop and take it in, to bring out the best in people as they stop to open the door for others entering a store instead of running to beat them to get in from the cold, bring new growth and possibilities to everyone who needs the warmth of the sun so that they know that seasons change, time passes as does times and seasons of our life.
So, Mother Nature, as I close out this plea for help....please see it in your heart to start the change that is needed. Once goodness starts it will spread!
