It was completely white outside my window this morning. The temps had dropped during the night..and the wind picked up, blowing the snow all around. Our roads are snow packed and hardly a car has gone by. I don't think that we got as much snow as predicted though. My first thoughts were of the little black cat that meanders through our woods everyday. I saw him down the road a bit just a few days ago. How can he survive in this kind of weather? Then my thoughts turned to the poor homeless people who are surviving on the streets of Rockford. In my, sometimes Pollyanna view of the world, everyone would have a bed to sleep in. But sadly...that isn't the case. My heart goes out to people like this. My wish for the Christmas season is that we take better care of these people and not just at Christmas time.
