…and it was beautiful

I live on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, close to Victoria.  Our weather is mild with lots of rain during the winter months.  This week we have experienced snow and when this happens, school is a very different place.  Both students and teachers are distracted in a good way, hoping for the elusive “Snow Day”.  On Monday, we even cancelled our weekly School Assembly to opt for playing outside for an extra 45 minutes after lunch.  Everyone was pretty happy and today we got our “Snow Day”.  Even our Superintendent, Scott Stinson, @10stinson enjoyed the day by creating a Snow Day, short film, entitled “Snow Dog”.  View it here.

Snow makes the world beautiful especially when it is an uncommon occurrence.  At our school we experienced our students being cooperative, being kind and just plain having fun!  Isn’t that a beautiful sight?

I am trying to develop a habit of writing in my journal and last night I was thinking about the snow and the sights at school and this is what I wrote…

…and it was beautiful

So much snow fell today, and it was beautiful.

So many students being kind to one another, and it was beautiful.

So much laughter in our staffroom today, and it was beautiful.

So many rosy cheeks and cheerful smiles, and they were beautiful.

So many snowflakes on eyelashes and mittens, and they were beautiful.

So many snow angels made today, and they were beautiful.

So much snow fell today, and it was beautiful.

Enjoy your winter days wherever you are.  I hope that you are able to see the beauty in all things!
