Ice chunks fell off weary tree limbs, breaking onto the ground with a smack as fat, wet snowflakes descended from the white sky.
That was the scene while walking home from my aunt and uncle's house this afternoon. A sudden snow flurry raced through our neighborhood for about an hour. I decided to stop a moment and sit at the nearby park to take it all in.
On a slush-covered, tilted bench I sat, more ice bits crashing around me. One large chunk in particular slammed onto a lower tree branch loaded with snow, forcing it all down below where I was seated!
And in that moment as the snow "exploded" overhead, cascading down and showering me, I smiled. It was a beautiful moment.
For you see I'm alone, sad, and friendless right now and it's those small, unexpected occurrences that keep me going a little more. It's all I have left so I cling to them tightly. Perhaps that's why I'm immortalizing it here on my blog.
Something good to remember and look back on. A moment like this.....
