|ONE OF MY ANGELS MAKING A SNOW ANGEL|
Here in the good old Midwest we have seen more snow than we have for years. Yet, I am old enough to remember the big snow storms in the mid 70's. I remember walking in snow, hip deep.
I wasn't home schooled like my children are, so when we got snow it was; "Yipee! NO SCHOOL!" So, we would make snowmen, throw mean snowballs at each other and go sledding.
I loved when daddy would take my baby brother and I to places with big hills. We had our Royal Racer (wooden sled) and dad would give us a big push and 'swoosh' down we went. I don't understand why other than a nose that was numb, I do not recall feeling cold at all. My mind just recalls all the fun and being with my favorite people in the world!
Desperate to get out of the house recently, the girls and I went outside a bit to play in the snow. It has been so cold lately, that we have just been huddled in our lovely, warm home day after day. If I didn't get outside soon, I believe I was going to implode!
So, we dug out the orange sled...tied a rope to it and mama pulled one child all around in the snow. Daddy came along and helped me pull both girls. Ya know what? I was having such a wonderful time that I didn't feel the cold, just a numb nose! :)
May I encourage you, enjoy this latter half of winter with fun, warmth and joy!
