Snow days were always fantastic surprises in my elementary years. But we often don't get them any more as adults.
Perhaps we should.
It's an unexpected and unplanned day off. A day of rest. A day of play. A day of forced inactivity due to the semi-hazardous driving conditions and lack of emotional gusto required to put on layers of snow gear. It might not even need to actually be snowing; you might just need permission to take the day off.
Take a snow day. In the midst of our increasingly busy and frantic culture, a snow day might be just the refreshing interval we need.
I declare today a snow day. Get some rest and rejoice in the cold and crisp beauty of God's creation.
