Snowboy Dylan, made by Susan today.
I think he has my grandson's eyes. Sunbeam hair.
Yesterday was treatment (I have cancer). After, I climbed into bed about three in the afternoon and slept until dinner. I woke an hour for soup and headed back to bed until 7:30 this morning. That’s a lot of sleep!
I wake with a smile, feeling strong and fresh, and head for my chair to sit quietly for a while. The window blinds in our home pull down from the top and we keep them partway down to see trees all around. As I enter the room, I notice lines of white on the branches. It snowed!
I live in north Texas (USA). With luck, it snows once or twice a winter. It rarely lasts more than a few hours.
I quickly dress, head outdoors. I build snowboys and snowgirls. I use found natural materials from our garden.
The snow melts quickly. Impermanence. Transition. No snow left, and one more idea. Snowgirl Isabel becomes Snowcat Jeanne.
I post more articles and links to all things kids and relationships on my Facebook Page. Like me there.
