Shoveling four inches of new snow wasn't something I planned to add to my to-do list on Thanksgiving Day. When framed differently, though, I got to have 40 or so minutes of peace and quiet that I was not going to get inside the house. I saw the tail end of a beautiful sunrise that I would otherwise have missed. Then I reminded myself to be thankful that I was able-bodied enough to be able to shovel my driveway. It was actually one of the best parts of the day.
