Upon waking up this morning and looking out the window, the world is softened by a layer of white. All is clean and pure, there is a feeling of calmness. The squirrel nest high up in the tree has a roof of white along with everything else and the only sound is the wind blowing. The moon is a little lower in the morning sky while in the east the sun is rising to take it's share of daytime. No one is seemingly awake or walking about, no automobiles have passed down the street and the world is waking up to beautiful first snow on this the last day of the year ... well almost the last day of the year!
May this coming year bring joy, happiness and peace of mind to all.
