Sometimes I think of how much we take for granted....things that we as adults, seem to forget as we grow older, get busier, spend less time on things we once used to love doing...I used to love going outside and playing in the snow as a child, building forts, making snow angels, and snowmen on the front yard...and now as an adult, I really just find the snow a nuisance....shovelling, scraping windows even after letting the car warm up for fifteen minutes, not to mention driving in it! Funny how things change, and I easily forget how much it used to make me so happy.I had some hang tags on my work island ready to decorate...the same complimentary tag's I send out to my clients with their packages, when one of my little guy's asked me if he could have one to colour. I obliged, as he love's to draw and colour, and cut and paste...just like mom! He came back to me after a few minute's, and offered me his little creation. This simple hang tag, with a simple juvenile snowman drawn quickly and efficiently ~in order to please mom as soon as possible~ just really reminded me to treasure my own childhood memories of winter.This simple gift, given from the heart of my six year old son, will be cherished.
