Yesterday my husband carefully raised the ailing mini blind in our bedroom to take photos of the falling snow. At once two of the strings broke, and the thing collapsed into a saggy mess.
It was as if we had a cat. (Someday, I tell myself, someday.) Not liking the “abandoned-house trailer look” we took it down, leaving the window bare. What a pain. How would I manage to sleep? Snow is amazingly bright at night.
Ah, but this morning I looked out and saw this. If that blind had been in place, I would have missed it. So many of our sunrises are clouded over that I never bother to look. And sunlight on snow? Not in this part of Oregon.
So I got to thinking. Trouble inconveniences me, and I sigh and complain. Instead I ought to pull myself together and look around. What is there to see that I otherwise would have missed? Something beautiful? I’ll never know if I don’t look.
Even if you own this book, why not give it a go? If you win, I’ll gladly send the prize to one of your friends.
Oh, and I’ve reduced the Kindle price by $1.00. For a 663-page e-book, $3.99 is a sweet deal. If I do say so myself.
