Snowman, 1994

A rare snowman-perfect snow



We don't get too many snows in Christian County, Kentucky, that are just right for building snowmen. Keely and Isaac built this handsome fellow in 1994. My goodness. Isaac was only three then, and Keely was seven! Keely tells me that the snowman's hat was the ice from the cats' water dish.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
