I remember when we were kids , we had so many other kids to run around with….The sounds and smells of winter wandered through our heads all year-long. The sound of snowmobiles were all around us , the smell of cold dry air , it stuck your nose shut. We all had Thanksgiving and Christmas on our minds as the days seemed to last forever. I remember playing outside until my feet went numb never wanting to come inside. The simplicity of our days never-ending with sliding and tunneling through piles of snow was at our height of excitement. Hoping for snow days away from school just so we could get more of our snowy frozen pleasures in. it was the greatest times of my life.
Today I was walking around outside taking in the pleasures of a newly fallen snow , it hit me ….wow there was no one within ear shot ….middle of the day and no kids ….no sounds of snowmobiles , just pure peace. I long for the simple days of my youth , I know I’m not the first to say this ….But today friends is the first day I understood it …Thanks for reading …please remember to share , like and comment …till next time …timzauto..
