The First Snowfall--One To Remember

It's December 2nd, and the NY-metropolitan area experienced the first snowfall of the season. It wasn't really a big deal for most, since it only left about an inch or so on the ground. But for us, it was a special time.
You see, this morning was the first time our little golden puppy touched and played in the icy cold substance. What a joyful and heartwarming scene.

Can you imagine what she must have been thinking? To be inside her head during that first step onto the cold ground would have been unbelieveable! The curiosity, the was pure happiness.
Of course Goldie loved the snow. She must have gone to the sliding door about a dozen times during the day to let us know she wanted to go out and play. Once she realized she could "eat" the snow, she got even more excited!
To experience today's "first" with our puppy is a memory I will always cherish.
Each and every person needs to learn to slow down and relish the little things in life that bring us joy.
Isn't life wonderful?!

What a cute dog!

Your blog came up in my inbox because I have the word "polymyositis" on my Google Alert list.

My husband is recovering from something they thought was polymyositis but now they aren't sure. This is his 2nd day home following a 35 day hospital stay.

I haven't seen fresh snow in quite some time (we're in California) but my in-laws are in NY, too.

Take care and thanks for your blog.
