Here’s a look at a normal winter morning this year...in my part of the world. If you've read/watched Hunger games...There is a word that's given a lot of importance. I'm referring to the word "HOPE"! Its powerful, its said and indeed it is!
Yes...its with that hope that the kids here, went ... to school every morning without any shivers..be it a normal opening or a delayed opening. Its with the same hope that they would look out the window, every morning, to see if it's going to be 7feet of snow, so they’ll have a day off! Ok..maybe 7inches! Well, the song had mentioned 7 feet of snow
They went out everyday, donning all the 101 paraphernalia that MOM's rules didn't make any compromises on...without any complaints. They coughed through the other days..without troubling mom with the knowledge of the pain their throats were suffering except for that one time..when P came to tell me...
"I think, I felt something rip inside my throat"
And all those trips to urgent cares..through falling snow or already snowed in roads, trying to keep the vehicle from sliding onto the on-coming traffic on a dark street! Those endless…snow shoveling..that Hubby dear endured, every morning..to keep the walkways ready for the kids to walk to their bus.
All of this..with the Hope that Winter is not here to stay.
They went to school today,..with the Hope that ... Spring is around the corner.
Hope is indeed very powerful.
Even as there's more snow around…to melt, the kids were ecstatic that today's high's will be in the 40s F. Well, after days of sub zero arctic temperatures..anybody is going to be happy with a 0C, right?!
Hubby dear proclaimed that he broke a sweat in his coat and had to unzip it!! :-)
Atleast the day light is going to be around for some more after this weekend.
Daylight savings this weekend…you see!
The email from school announced that the first day of spring, March 20th, will be celebrated with no homeworks and assignments or projects…
Kudos to all the kids and the hope that next week is going to be warmer than this week.
