Snow and Feeling Better

Thanks to everyone for the well wishes and prayers for my mom, all are appreciated. She is feeling better day by day.

Thankfully, my brother took her to the hospital before the snow worsened on Saturday. Also, it thankfully held off snowing again as while we travelled from VA to NJ on Monday. We were able to visit briefly on Monday night.


Monday overnight it started snowing again continuing on and off throughout the day. This winter view was seen from our motel. Granted it's not the most scenic, but then we didn't venture out early as Monday had been a long day.

By early afternoon, we headed out to visit my mom, who was feeling much better than at our previous visit. The snow had become a slushy mess on the roadways, but what remained on the trees and roadsides was still pretty to us.



Heading back to the motel during rush hour traffic on Route 22, the snowy slush gave car lights an holiday light "look."

Sometimes, we need to find holiday magic wherever and whenever possible.

The miserable weather yielded good reflections. I'm happy for you that the traveling has gone well and that mother is rallying.

So sorry about the family illnesses. My mother had some minor surgery two weeks ago - she's 87. My mother in law is in a nursing home and not doing well. So sad this time of year when you have one in the hospital. I wish you well as you spend time with your mother and safe travels to your husband on his visit as well. (((((HUGS)))) and Prayers.

My mother passed away this spring. I find myself dreading Christmas.
