For this I am thankful for Gary's sake.
Yesterday there was a prediction for 5-8 inches of snow. Because of the time it was predicted to fall I, most likely, would have had an early dismissal. Two extra hours to take care of personal tasks are always a gift.
The snow did not arrive. A flurry or two, but not even a dusting on the ground.
Disappointed? Slightly. But then I thought about Gary.
Gary works outside, and this has been a cold, snowy, windy winter. I was very thankful he had a break yesterday.
Sometimes we want something, but if we don't get it, and the absence of it blesses another, then we too are blessed.
Thank You, God, for blessing Gary.
