A Fall/Winter Vignette

by Deanna

My tummy is full and there is gratefulness in my heart as I write this post on the evening of Thanksgiving.  I hope all of you had a day filled with gratitude for the blessings each of us have received in our lives.

Today it is raining, alot.  Last weekend it snowed alot. In fact we broke another record here in the Chicagoland area by having the most snow fall this early in the year. Whoopee another winter weather record breaker. (Say that fast 5 times) But I honestly have to say it was really magical. There were still many leaves that remained on the trees which created a delightful snowy vignette of winter/fall in one image. The changing of the seasons brilliantly displayed with this early and heavy snowfall.  You know, the heart-attack kind of snow that is wet and really heavy, the perfect making a snow-man kinda snow, the perfect stick to every branch snow. I saw more snowmen last weekend than I saw all last winter.

The snow is long gone, eventho it was a record breaker, and the ground is now soggy from melted snow and heavy rains. But today I am grateful for that little bit of magic that I captured with my lens, the beauty, the transition, the enchantment, all in one record breaking Saturday in November.

Happy Thanksgiving!

He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.
