We’ve spent the last four years in Florida. So to say that my children are excite about snow is an understatement.
ThingFive and BabyThing never even remembered snow until last March, when we happened to be at my parents’ house for a spring snowfall. They made a few snowballs on Grandad and Grammy’s deck. But they had never really played in the snow — until today.
Today, they are sledding and making snow-people and having snowball fights. And I am warming them with hot cocoa and coffee cake and fuzzy blankets when they come inside for a break.
Today, these are some of the blessings I am counting.
