first snow

I was grumpy when I first saw the snow. I didn't have that joy seeing the beautiful snowflakes. I had that overwhelming annoyance at it's presence. The kids though, they quickly changed that. Their excitement was contagious. They were dancing and making circles with their tracks. The sound of their laughter filled the air. Their joy was pure. My mood was quickly swayed and I found myself smiling. A huge ear to ear smile feeling completely content.
