Let it Snow

Day Two of Count Your Blessings

I'm really glad I took my pictures yesterday of the beautiful autumn colors, 'cause look what happened today:

It's beginning to look a lot like winter!

So today I'm thankful for a heater that works, storm windows and doors, warm blankets and clothes, a gas stove and oven, and a water heater.  All the modern conveniences that make life during the winter in Iowa bearable.  I recently read, as I do each year, The Long Winter, by Laura Ingalls Wilder.  This book, more than any other, helps me remember my many blessings.  I have it so easy!
