For all of you who have been literally dumped with snow, I'm sure you will be a little perplexed with my enthusiasm, but yesterday was only our second major snow fall of the year. I'm sure I will regret saying this next year but I have missed the snow.
I have missed those snowy days of long ago when school was cancelled. I have missed those days when the snow was good for packing and we could all get outside and play. I miss the days when my children and grandchildren were little and we would make snowmen and angels in the snow. I miss chasing them all around the yard, falling down, and laughing until our tummy's hurt. I miss the days when my hubby and I would put them on sleds and pull them up and down our street.
This year it was only me that got out out to play and enjoy the snow. My hubby was busy clearing it away and Charli was sitting by our back door begging to go back inside. After I finished building my snowman I took a picture of it with my phone. Then I sent it to all of our children and grandchildren for old times sake.
One of the first things I saw when I woke up this morning was my silly little snowman. It made me smile. Of course my hubby has been relentless in his teasing but that's how I know he likes it too.
Some people may say I'm a little childish but I have always believed in that inter child we all have. I think we need to cultivate it and bring it out. It's something I have always made a point to do. As a society we are much to serious. I think that's why some of us are so happy when our grandchildren come along. We have an excuse to do silly and fun things again. Try doing something fun today that you wouldn't normally do. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at just how good it will make you feel.
With warmest regards, Carol
