The Thoughts of a Winter Past

In North Carolina today we have had more than the usual snowfall, the entire eastern half of the U. S. is covered in snow and ice. Some places are without  power so it’s not all fun. Driving can be a challenge. But in all I have to tell you it feels like when I was a little guy of 12 years old. The world is quiet when snow is falling, except for the birds.

There’s one thing I wish I could do. Walk into the next room and ask Momma if it would be ok to go out and play in the snow. Just one more time. Get all her instructions to bundle up, then blast through the door and outside. Come home and you know what would be waiting…a cup of her hot chocolate. Just one more time. Tell her about the afternoon outside romping in the snow. Just one more time.

I’ll count myself lucky to have had her for so long. Received all those instructions. All that hot chocolate.
