To appreciate the beauty of a snow flake, it is necessary to stand out in the cold.-Anonymous
Fellow Michiganders! Have you seen the snow outside?!?! Silly question. I know you have! It’s hard to miss.
So what do you think? Are you a snow loving person? Personally, I’ll take summer over the cold. But one of the positive enjoyments of winter is that it provides some FREE entertainment right outside your door! Yes…. get outside with your littles! To hear those belly giggles as they are flying down the snow hill. Seeing the bonds created between siblings as the older kids help the younger kids. Having a sledding intermission that includes a snowball fight. Stepping out of “Mom Mode” and hopping on that sled yourself. Letting those littles get a good laugh as they push you down the big hill. Hearing you scream as you end up backwards brings a smile to their face (evil laugh? still figuring that one out…).
All of the above is what I was just able to appreciate the last little part of my Saturday. Normally I rather stay in. But as I kept watching my oldest and youngest have fun together. I knew I was where I needed to be in that moment. These precious memories are worth a fortune. Don’t let them pass by. Before you know it. You’ll be wishing to hear those little kid giggles again.
