Singin' in the Rain? No, Swingin' in the Snow!
Thought I would post a quick blurb on here so that Dad can see what my curious Caoilin is up to this week. She convinced me to take her swinging in the snow, against my better judgement. To me, the idea of sailing through freezing air does not sound the least bit appealing, but once again, she proved me wrong. We swung for at least 30 minutes and you can see in this photo all the joy that she felt flying through the air.
We sang, "How I love to go up in the air, up in the sky so white," as the snow was falling down all around us. One of the greatest joys of being a mother is that you get to be a kid again. You get to remember what it is like to let go of all you know and put yourself in a place of wonder and delight, despite all your fears and notions you have gained through life experiences.
I hope you get a chance to go swinging in the snow this week. Lose yourself in the moment, despite the chaos of the world around you.
