|Gail Kelsey's first experience of snow. "We came out and there was about five inches of snow over everything. It was the most beautiful sight ever."|
This is just one photograph from an article published today titled: "An Aussie on the loose in the USA : Gail Kelsey at a Hootenanny"
With permission from the author, it is my great pleasure today to present to you the content of a 'group email' that I received from a long time Australian friend named Gail. Gail is currently in the USA and she sent all her friends this absolutely beautiful email about her trip. Amid all the other things she has learned in the USA, is how to send a group email. She has yet to learn how to put a photo in an email so she told me I could choose some of the photos from her Facebook page. Gail sent me the photograph of the Campbell family after I sent her a copy of this article and she assures me that the family is fine having their names and faces in this article. I hope American readers will enjoy this reading experience as much as Gail's friends in Australia. (Preface by R.P. BenDedek)
I woke up this morning, to the yard covered in three inches of snow. I looked out the window. And this beautiful white scene was waiting for me. I put on the WARM clothes, got my camera. And I was out of the house. Taking some classic photos.. The simple things we never see. Snow heavy on branches, on an old wagon wheel, all over a tractor. Wonderful sights.. Yes I know. Many of you have seen this before. But I haven't. And I loved it. My bucket list was to have a white Christmas. And that was the main reason I came all this way. But I have been blessed with so much more. I feel a deep connection with these people and this town... Last night I was at the Hootenanny. And I felt tears coming to my eyes. I just felt so blessed with this amazing opportunity that God has given to me.. I feel like I have been given a GIFT...(Gail Kelsey)
