Come Sit By Me A While: Snowflakes and Laughter.

Well how nice to see you all here this morning again. Shake the snow from your boots and get these steaming hot cuppas down you.

Isn't it all so beautiful; it sure gives that pure sense of well being.

My grandchildren are having such fun in the snow but I have to admit that it brings out that child in me too!!

The child that is never very far from the surface anyway.

What can be more pure than a child's laughter ;what can be more precious than holding a child so close to our hearts to love and protect them.

I realise just how blessed I am to be surrounded by children's laughter ; to have the arms of a little one around my neck saying those precious words "I love you Mamgu !"

The greatest love of all does indeed happen inside of me !!!

We could search the skies for wondrous gems;for miracles to light our days when most of the time they are right here in our hearts and soul.

I love each and everyone of them so dearly and it is with a happy heart that I now share the laughter of little ones in our snow filled Wales with you all !!!

Gather round !!

The Snowman.

A wondrous snowman

Standing so tall and so proud

Each child's joyous face.

Laughter

Wonderful sounds

Oh yes how magical

I love this winter wonderland

Mother Nature's kingdom so tall and bright

Oh how my heart does fill with joy

Caressing each wonder

That heart lifting

Laughter.

A World So Pure;A World So Bright.

A world so pure so bright.

What a wondrous sight

I feel that magic

Never to darken

To taste and never let go

Each dawn,each moment,each day

Readily I share with you all.

x

When a bright dawn beckons

Oh world cocooned in virginal bliss

Never to cry,never to crumble

Darkness discarded

Eternal magic embraces

Reaching for those horizons

Laden with snow tinged gifts

All days seeped in sincere appreciation

Never a truer beauty from within

Dear friends I share with you all

Here's to hoping you all had a good time today again and have a safe journey home.

Lots of love from my little corner of Wales.

Eddy.

Good Morning, Eddy! Thank you for sharing the wonderful pictures of your grandkids. They look like they're having a ball - a snowball, that is. Ha ha!

You've started my day off with a smile once again, my friend!

Great material, Eddy, and fantastic pictures. If I were there, I would be playing right in the middle of it all with the kids. I could teach them how to snowshoe and cross country ski. There were a few flakes here a few weeks ago, and to be honest, I miss it. I would love to be able to get a few snow scenes with the birds.

I love your pictures as they really reflect all the fun children have in the snow. Your poetry is excellent too. You are right in saying there is nothing so precious as the laughter of children. I love my grandchildren too.

Eddy,

It does not snow in my city, but usually outskirts have plenty of snowfalls. Unfortunately, it did not snow even in the city outskirts. These pictures remind me what I'm missing this winter.

My first grandchild – a granddaughter, baby Charlotte (Charlie) -- is due in a matter of just a few days. I am a huge smile and a joyous heart in anticipation of her arrival. This wonderful hub fills me with memories of when I was a little girl – fun times I will be sharing with her as well. Such fun in the snow, Eddy, and reminders of how the child within us all -- is never very far from the surface. Wonderful hub, dear Eddy. ;-)

This brought so many memories Eddy, It looks as though your grandchildren are having a whale of a time. The snow looks quite deep in places you must have had a great deal.

We on the other hand are on drought warning.

Lovely photos as usual. Thank you for sharing

Snow fun! Thanks for sharing your snowtime with us. :) Seeing the kids have such fun brings smiles… :) When we have a first snow that blankets everything in brilliant white it is as if the world has been remade. The hushed quiet beauty that gives us such mixed feelings--don't move or breath or do anything to disturb it verses rush out into the splendor and embrace it with hands and feet and laughter--always an amazing time. Here in the lower SE USA, however, we wouldn't quite know what to do with as much snow as it appears you get!

Eiddwen 3 years ago from Wales Author

Thank you so much RTalloni for this wonderful comment; so many of us love those very first snows ; it gives a lift and the hushed beauty of the land is always so truly amazing.

Here's to wishing you a wonderful Sunday.

Lots of love from my little corner of Wales.

Eddy.
