My Mr. Snowman
This has made me think about how simple things—like a snowman—can make such a difference in our lives. When we surround ourselves with little things that remind us of the good times in life it makes more good times. So many people are caught up in having a “Pottery Barn Home” where the décor is professional looking and everything matches perfectly and is the latest style. While that may be the stuff magazine covers are made of, it isn’t as comforting as a home where everywhere you look there are reminders of the good things in life instead of worldly success. A happy home is clean, neat, beautiful, but an archive of happiness. Those things can be temporary, like Mr. Snowman, or they can be permanent but by surrounding ourselves with reminders of the good moments in life we extend those moments and fill our hearts with goodness.
