After we put the kids to bed for the evening we opened a bottle of wine and sat by the crackling fire. It was there we discussed our summer plans and enjoyed the smoky warmth of the cabin. It was only in the distance we could hear the faint sound of snow running off the mountainside.
An hour later we heard a similar noise and this time the cabin began to shake for several minutes. We looked at each other, clutching our wine glasses, in awe of the sheer force of the avalanche rumbling in the far distance.
It was one of those first warm springtime days which was the perfect condition for an avalanche in the area. The sun had beat down its warmth on top of the snowy peaks to grace us with its springtime beauty.
An avalanche is dangerous, its loud, and sometimes unpredictable. You never know which way the snow will run off the mountainside. Sometimes transitions in life are just as unpredictable but always for the better.
The sun has a quiet way of waking up the world and it cues the changes of the season. Once the snow is shed from the mountain there is a welcoming beauty which is fervent for change.
