The gift of snowflakes


20 seconds
does it make a difference?
Sometimes...
It is a last breathe
….a sound
…an long awaited prayer answered
…..sometimes it’s just a simple gesture

….a tug of the heart
….a split second decision that will change a life

Every once in a great while, it’s as simple as a footprint
A forgotten stamp of an unforgettable life on the snow-blanketed concrete floor
Her footprints.

She stamps the pattern into the snow 12 times over
We are cold
Impatient
Quick to discipline
But to her…it’s a moment.

 ….to catch snowflakes on her tongue
….to  make an imprint of her being
….to live in that moment

Will the 20 seconds make a difference?
Not in 10 years.
But for RIGHT now….they do.  To her. 
These times will fade.  Almost as quickly as the footprints do.
So we let her capture her snowflakes.
As we try to capture the moment from a different perspective….of seeing the world from a child’s eyes & allowing the magic to shape our hearts.
