Deb, you reminded me of something wonderful that happened to me. See, it usually snows here in the high desert in February. One February a few years,ago I woke up at 2a.m. & it was snowing. I got bundled up and went outside. Everything was white & magical. It was so quiet with the beautiful silence of snow falling. Then I realized that the sky was pink, everything around me was glowing in pink & a faint lavender. It was amazing & glorious & I will never forget it. The silence of the snow, the frosted branches & the pink glow <3 <3
