She Was My Snow Angel

I was watching the news and they were talking about a group of volunteers called the snow angels. These volunteers come and shovel sidewalks for people like seniors who are unable to. What a great idea! Here we see both youth and energy channeled in a productive way.

It reminded me of a time when I lived next door to a lady. She had this wonderful invention called a snow blower. Sometimes after it snowed I would get ready to go out and shovel. When I looked out my window I would see that the main sidewalk was already done. And what a joy that was to see! That snow blower did a much better job that my most immaculate snow shoveling efforts could ever do.

So if you have more muscle than money this gift giving season, you can always consider being a snow angel. Not that you officially have to join a group to do this, you can do it just on your own. You never know 10-20 years later someone might still remember it.


  1. We have snow angels too. Someone who has a snow blower and does the walk in front and a neighbor with a tractor who plows out the back area behind our garages all along the back alley. God bless them!

  2. Bob across the street (in our Ottewell house) used to be our snow angel. So often he'd take the blower around the houses in our little corner..........

    Lovely post!
