It's Snowing Outside

That's what I heard a short while ago from Brennan as he ran to the big window to watch the snow. The Disney Channel and snack abandoned. I sat there for a while just watching him watch the snow. There was such delight there. I was so upset when I first realized it was going to snow today. I'm not one for cold weather let alone slushy mess to walk and drive through. But as I watched him staring out the window at the snow I realized that I needed to stop being upset and enjoy watching the beautiful snow fall. I realize this sounds all mushy and stuff but I miss being a child with all that wonder. Every now and then I catch a glimpse of it and it brings me back to all the fun and wonder of being a child and praying for snow. Of course we rarely got snow in South Carolina but here it's different. The first year we were here and it snowed I was totally amazed. I hope that I can keep that wonder and awe in the future. It was priceless and I wanted to capture that moment. Brennan has now told me all about how snow is made and what it is. It's priceless. I love being a mom and getting to experience these amazing moments with my children. I can't wait for the day that Jaxon gets what snow is too. Thanks for letting me share.

Such a sweet post. I think it's important to try to see the fun and wonder in life as a child does... in some ways kids seem to have life figured out better than we adults do. It's the simple things...

I still love snow, just like my kids. When we woke up there was snow on the yards around us. My little S was so upset that we didn't have snow on our yard, too. Maybe next time.

Good to hear from you again.
