Snowy Day

We unwrapped gifts from Nitza and
were surprised by the lovely books and xylophone.
Shockingly there was also a GIRAFFE!!!
She didn't even know about our loss.
He is rubber and Auggie immediately popped it
in his mouth to chew.

Then it snowed
making the roads treacherous
Cars slid over Northern Parkway
I thought of Dave driving home in his little pickup truck
and sat wringing my hands
making a fresh pot of coffee to stay busy

He came stomping
in the front door bringing a waft of cold with him.
He was stressed and grumpy and loveable
I handed him coffee and breathed in relief that
my family was home safe.
