Thoughts on Snow and Snowflakes… by Gabby


It’s the time of year…Snowflakes, as well as snow are on my mind. Well, living here in PA that’s winter times gift to us. Our gift last night was a few inches of snow, more is expected tonight into tomorrow. Isn’t that a nice way to look at snow and snowflakes in general?  Call them blessings, gifts and embrace the whole snow concept…That’s what I have vowed to do. I was thinking about how each and every snowflake is different. Just like people, every snowflake is an individual. No twin snowflakes, what a disappoint that was to find out let me tell you! Isn’t that a rather amazing thought of no two snow flakes being alike? I think so, not that I have ever chance to analyze any snowflake. They really do melt when you have them in your hand, they land on you face and just disappear!
Thank goodness for those good facial creams, potions and lotions. I kind of think snowflakes are just a bit magicial. When Autumn and I were young we would stick out our tongues to catch a taste of a snowflake. I now, they don’t taste like much of anything. But when you’re young, you embrace these things. The twinnie and I would make up flavors the snowflakes tasted like…We had very good imaginations, what can I tell you? It was one of those wacky little games, asking each other “what does your snowflake taste like?”
Thankfully our parents knew we had just been gifted with those good imaginations. They always went along with the game, never correcting us, what a joy to have Dad and Mom. Other parents might have been stodgy and simply no fun…Making us stop the snowflake tasting game at once. You know, some parents would have done that…I feel sorry for those types. Stifling and stopping all the ponderings, wonderings and all of young minds.
Anyway, those are my thoughts on snowflakes…Do any of you kind readers have any snowflakes thoughts? If so, please share because…Sharing is always fun! 😉 🙂

    • I know PJ, no snow sightings for you. 😦 I wish we could mail you some snow so you could see it. 🙂 You are so welcome about writing another story to take us back to our younger days. I always love a good stroll down memory lane. 🙂

    • It sounds like you have been getting your fair share of snow, too! I fear I am very tired of shoveling the snow already. How embarassing because I said I was going to embrace the snow! Happy you had sun throughout the weeked, too. Thanks for loving my little stories and I do love sharing them Sherline! 🙂

  2. What a wonderful story, Gabby! The memories you have from your childhood are precious and priceless and it’s also great that your parents allowed you and Autumn to have fun with your imaginations. Isn’t that what being a child is all about? Anyway, thanks for sharing…I still wish we had snow here, but that’s okay…xx

    • Thanks so much Lauren! 🙂 Autumn and I have such wonderful memories of our childhood days. I know we were so blessed that Dad and Mom let us use our imaginations! It really is what being a kid is all about, I love sharing as you know by now. I have to smile at you wishing you had snow there. Ours is melting off in the last couple days, but I hear tell more is on the way. Thanks for enjoying another of my memories! 🙂
