Happiness is Shoveling

Happiness is Shoveling

happiness, snow

A snowdrift is a beautiful thing – if it doesn’t lie across the path you have to shovel or block the road that leads to your destination. ~ Hal Borland

I haven’t lived in the Northeast for almost 25 years and so today’s storm got me reacquainted with the snow shovel.  I honestly don’t mind shoveling, something nice, simplistic and very mindful about being out in the cold and the snow repeating a single activity.  The result for a big hairy man of course is that you end up with a frozen beard and mustache and snow in your hair but it’s not so bad.  There is a wonderful sense of achievement in looking back on a cleared side-walk, at least until it gets covered again with snow 15 minutes later.  So go out and shovel and have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
