It Shouldn’t Snow in May!

  Yesterday I was listening to a CD by Martha Beck, Life Coach, reminding us to Question our Thoughts. Are they honestly true?  Byron Katie, Loving What Is,  also comes to mind. I can hear her ask the question “Is it true?”

Snow is falling. It’s May in Wisconsin. I do not recall ever seeing it snow here in May. “It shouldn’t be snowing! It’s May! My daffodils and tulips will freeze!”  Is it true? No. The truth is that it is snowing and therefore it should be. Two days ago it was 81 degrees. As I worked in my yard for a couple of hours on that warm day, I was feeling a little tension while noticing how much (I thought) needed to be done in my gardens, in addition to raking the lawn, cleaning up puppy poop and reseeding bare areas. Today my entire yard and gardens are covered with snow. All looks clean and still. There is nothing to be done but watch the gorgeous snow fall.
