It's been less than a month since I retired from my full time job in the city. I have had lots of opportunities to shovel snow over the past month! The winter came in like a lion here in the country. We had continuous snow for a couple of weeks which threatened to snow us in! I did say I enjoyed shovelling snow.....but this got pretty intense!
We were out clearing snow together and one piece of equipment after another broke down until we had no way left to do the job. We had struggled all day trying to clear a path in the snow. I looked at my other half and laughed out loud...we had to give in to the fact we needed help. I pushed him into the snow and fell down laughing beside him. Why had we thought we had to do everything ourselves? It couldn't be a coincidence that all 4 pieces of snow removal equipment broke down on the same day. The angels were trying to direct us to take advantage of our options and not make it so difficult for ourselves. That day we called the neighbour and arranged to have him plow our driveway whenever we have another big snowfall.
