the guys had been out for hours.
they shoveled everyone out.
they are amazing and totally deserve
i shooed them in, telling them i'd
be along after i got some snow off a
few more trees.
'there's stew on the stove,' i hollered
and headed off to finish up.
the snow was so deep, i actually got
stuck in it, tryin' to clear my window
box! my foot got stuck, i fell backwards
just laughing. i just lay there laughing.
my gosh. i love this stuff.
got myself up and headed back to the
once i finished that.....it was the time
i had been waiting for.
i found just the perfect spot in my back
ohhhhhh my gosh.
it GLISTENED with sparkles everywhere.
it was a blanket of diamonds.
i plopped down on my back and just looked
up at the sky thru the snow covered branches.
it was so beautiful.
i lay flat on my back with my legs bent at
the knees and that actually worked. the snow
was that deep!
at one point i sat up and looked over at
my kitchen window. the lights were on and
i could see the hearts hangin' everywhere.
i looked up at the sky, and down at the snow
and just fell back again.
and i whispered to the stars:
she lay on a blanket of diamonds looking
up at a sea of diamonds and thanked god
for this gift she was given called life.
