I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, and I got it! I was thrilled to wake up this morning to a blanket of snow, and then it continued. What I thought would be 1-3 inches of the powdery white stuff, ended up being closer to five, which caused us to change our family plans.
While I'm bummed at not traveling to see some of my family today, my takeaway is that there is always a silver lining. We've already set up our back-up plan to see each other, and now we have plans closer to home. This includes going to church in our community and watching my favorite movie, "A Christmas Story." It will be a mellow day, but it will be fun in its own way.
Lesson learned: Look for the silver lining.
