let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...please?

It's beginning to look a lot like we will be having a green Christmas in Kansas this year. Being Shawn's first visit to my parent's home in the winter time (the kids and I spent two Christmases here while he was in Iraq), I was really hoping for snow. The sledding hills around here are amazing and there is just nothing like sitting by the fireplace and that wall of windows as snowfall softly blankets the wooded landscape outside. I won't complain though. While snow would be great, it's enough that we are here. All of us. There will be no tears on the phone Christmas morning, no waiting for emails saying he's back safe in his camp, that he received his care package, no I wish daddy could see this moments. No, none of that.  
We're all here sharing the same Christmas memories, and that's enough for me.

{Please join me each day until Christmas at There is a River with my sister, Christie Purifoy, as she shares beautiful thoughts, poetry, and prayers for Advent against a backdrop of the images you will see here. You are also invited to contribute your own photos to the Advent Flickr group. If you are not a photographer, we hope you will still join both of us there to watch as the season quietly unfolds in pictures.}
