The Rise and Fall of a Snowman

I woke up the other morning with the biggest smile greeting me – the smile of a happy, happy, happy snowman – he was the happiest, tallest and best snowman I’ve seen so far this year and he was right next door.  “Good morning Mr. Snowman.”

He seemed to be waiving me over – “Come out and play,” but I could not. The weather was too harsh, but I was happy to peak out at him every once in a while – he made me smile too.

The snow was being covered by freezing rain – it was coming down hard and it was too harsh to venture outside, but Mr. Snowman continued smiling – what a trooper. Though he didn’t show it in his face, things were obviously weighing heavily on Mr. Snowman.

Finally, the harsh reality – in snow, as in life, nothing is forever. Mr. Snowman finally succumbed to the weather.

Darkness was not the only thing that fell that night. We’ll miss your smiling face Mr. Snowman.
