We had our first snow flurry here about an hour ago. Gabe and I were just leaving Whole Foods (spend way too much time and money there but that's for another day).
The white stuff only fell for a few moments.
My initial reaction?
Oh dear god, here we go again.
Gabe's initial reaction?
Turned my mood around in about a nano second.
Remember, Gabe just turned two at the end of September. I wouldn't have expected him to remember snow at all. Lord knows I try to put it out of my mind. But there he was - proclaiming to all who would listen - "Snow, Dada!"
I might just need to change my perspective on those many things we adults react to with annoyance.
It has always been my belief that a successful life revolves around retaining a child-like sense of wonder.
"Oh, BOY! SNOW!"
