Natural chaos is waking up to the radio guy saying:
Extreme winter driving conditions today!
and then looking out the window to a pile of new snow that thanks to the blustery winds has drifted across roads and sidewalks and doorways.
Okay I’m a nice Canadian girl and I know that winter means snow…and snow shovelling. But sometimes you just want to pull the covers over your head and say “Enough!”
Loving the chaos means going with the flow – or in this case the snow fall – with no more than your five minute daily allotment of complaining.
Know that I took my full five minutes before I put on my big boots and coat and mitts and headed out the door to shovel.
Then I said my little prayers of gratitude that I have a driveway to shovel, I have central heating , a fireplace and a nice stock of red wine. I’m working from home today unlike other poor people who had to actually drive on those extreme roads.
Then I watched my aging and always wise dog Cal who had a blast in the yard leaping through the drifts like he was a puppy.
His perspective: this is a whole new way to play today.
It’s still snowing so I get to go out and play again.
