My sons built their first snowman this week. They named him "Snowy."
When the snow first fell, it was too fluffy to build into a snowball, much less a proper snowman. (As Southerners visiting Maine, we learned that snow can be light and fluffy - unlike the heavy, wet smattering of snow common in the South). Each morning and afternoon, the boys would test the snow.
The boys had to wait 3 days until the snow was just right enough and Snowy could be "born." Snowy is lumpy, lopsided, a bit dirty... and totally wonderful. (And, in true 2020 form, Snowy has a mask).
Snowy is a lesson in patience, creativity and finding true joy in simple actions. As life continues to throw complexities and unknowns our way, may you ground yourself in memories of when patience and simplicity paid off.
