Ah-mazing Snow

It was ah-mazing!

I woke up this morning and opened the shutters - to this.

I've never seen anything like it before. So pretty.

And then we hit the slopes.

Ah-mazing. Good powder makes such a difference when skiing. I even skiied for a while on a red run.
Pretty proud of myself.
I much more enjoyed the blue runs though - and I had to constantly remind myself to focus on skiing - and stop looking at the awesome view all around.

But then I would hear a 4-year-old's voice, "Come, Kylie, Come."
I think she was slightly frustrated with me - I am slowing her down and she has black runs to complete.

I was reminded all day long of an excerpt that I read recently from a blog I follow - http://donmilleris.com - by my current favourite author.

My favorite part of the conversation was when Tim talked about the beauty of life, how he leans toward a belief in something greater, something that gives life a greater meaning. And of how we need somebody to be grateful to when we see a sunrise or come over a ridge to see the ocean lapping toward us.
And just felt grateful all day long for this new, fresh and ah-mazing view that I got to be a part of today. Today I really felt this beauty of life, this something greater. Thanks Jesus!

Time for bed - I'm absolutely stuffed! And perhaps a tincy bit sore.
But I'll never admit it.
