Where I grew up in Texas it didn't snow very often. So when it did, it was a big deal. Especially if you were a kid. And even more so if it was a school day!
I remember my mom would always wake me up by quietly whispering in my ear, "It snowed last night."
I would go from asleep to looking out the window in no time at all!
It snowed here recently, and the bright winter wonderland, still untouched by any playful children, reminded me of those mornings.
I now have my own child, and I can't wait to make special memories with him as he grows up.
I will always remember those lightly whispered words and the excitement I felt in those moments.
