A Moment of Peace

Snack Girl is taking a break during the holidays and I wanted to leave you with this image.

A Holiday Wish

I wrote this post a few years ago and I like it so much that I am posting it again. I may be repeating myself but I can't improve upon the sentiment:

You know that moment when the sun is about to come up and every one else is asleep?

There are birds chirping and the view looks cleaner, newer, and fresher. That moment is the one I try to catch for about 5 seconds in my day.

I caught that moment in this photo of a snow storm a few years ago. The snow was sticky and it made the most amazingly peaceful scenery, don't you think?

I opened my window on the second floor, put my hand with my camera outside, took the picture, and then my children came bouncing into my room. Moment gone (but captured).

My wish for you is that you get a couple moments of peace for yourself during this holiday, however you celebrate it.

Thank you for reading Snack Girl. I am grateful you take a moment of your day to visit here.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas! What a beautiful picture. It will be 72 degrees Christmas Day in our town but snow would be fun.

Happy Christmas Lisa! Enjoy your break.
All the best for the new year!

Thank you Lisa...needed this today...may we all take a deep breath, sit back and enjoy the beauty's the world shares with us everyday. Merry Christmas and many blessings for 2015.

Hope you enjoy some wonderful Christmas memories -- take care.

I remember when you orginally posted that picture & message. It is a great reminder that we must remember to take a step back & take a deep breath. Although the holiday season is one I have always treasured I realize how chaotic it can be (especially with children afoot). I wish you & your family the happiest of holidays. Enjoy your break from Snack Girl. See you in the New Year.

Thanks, Lisa, for all you do to inspire us to better health! Hoping the Reason for the season is first in your heart b/c He is the only One who gives true peace! Merry Christ-mas! Ps love the pic!

Merry Christmas, Lisa! Enjoy the time with your family...see you soon!

Beautiful words, so nice to read in the midst of all of the holiday rush. Thank you!

Dearest Lisa I am privileged to start every day with Jesus .

I do enjoy your emails . VERY informative and I appreciate your sense of humor. Thanks for that beautiful, relaxing picture. Enjoy your family and time off ! 🌺

Happy holidays everyone. Great article by the way.

Absolutely beautiful!!! Glad you captured the moment. As a mom, I think we appreciate the moments mor than anyone because they are so fleeting. Of course, happy children bounding in your room is a special kind of joy that only moms can appreciate!

Happy holidays to you, too.
