Sparkling frost, radiant sunlight, cold: this morning reminds me of how I love winter’s beauty.

When my girls were little, they loved these mornings when Jack Frost first appeared in the season. Today, with a kitten in arms, my 12-year-old stepped out on the deck, oohing, then decided to wear a hat on her walk to school.

I counseled my teenager, Soak up the sunlight. There’s more gray to come.

Little Jacky Frost nipped my nose
Little Jacky Frost nipped my toes
So I went inside and shut the door!
