|This is a lovely poem, Karen. It gave me a warm feeling as I read it and I love the message at the end - reminding us that it's the present moments we should treasure, rather than looking always into the future and regretting what we all 'live without'. Your poetry has a lovely flow to it. Thank you also for stopping by to read mine.

|This is a most enlightening poem that makes one who has lived understand the makings of God. The beauty of a bleak day that brings warmth within and marvel at the workings of God's creations. Isn't it wonderful to see the beauty of our Heavenly Father.

|Thank you, Karen. This almost felt Disney-like to me as I imagined all the furry friends and animated outside elements crowding in through the door to snuggle up together on the settee round your blazing fire! And also reminded me of The Sound of Music, for some strange reason... Julie Andrews singing "My Favourite Things"! I know I'm a bit strange... but this sparkles and kindles the imagination.

|Very nicely done Karen. I was just out on the back 40 cutting down some trees for more firewood so a lot of what you wrote really hit home with me. I really appreciate all the blessings God gives us when I'm out in the forest using the basic gifts that He has provided to help keep us warm on days like this. God bless and (HUGS) from your friend in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

|Wathever happened to that bear sking and a cup of hot chocolate in front of that roaring fire? then one could get a lot more warmth with company. Shoo the kittens though, they have too sharp little claws.
