An Icy Picture That Melts Hearts

first sleet

There are moments in life that you hope you are still enough to notice.

Moments that can pass you by in the blink of an eye, moments that if you are too busy looking towards tomorrow… you’ll miss.

This is one of those moments.

We were so busy cleaning out our garage, readying for our garage sale… not really paying attention to the rare occasion that was happening around us.


Frozen rain.

South Texas.

Frozen Rain in South Texas.

We dismissed it completely as a mild annoyance until Monkey stood on our doorstep in full regalia and said:  “Daddy, pick me up and hold me up so that I can see the ice”

We stopped dead in our tracks and realized.

He is 3 years old and he’s never seen ice fall from the sky before.

I ran for the camera and my husband.. he gathered Monkey into his arms and into the ice they danced.

My two men.
