Last night it was snowing like crazy.
Big fat snowflakes coming down so hard that I could barely see, even a car length ahead of me, driving home late from Target.
So at 10:00 when I got home I ran in,
dumped Kit & the groceries on Kelly
& grabbed my phone to call my college roomie.
She didn't answer.
So I called her again.
See where it says Rensen?
Yes...I called her 7 times...in a row!
So I left a message telling her why I was calling.
And when I had finally given up,
my phone rang.
It was her.
She was singing.
And I said so desperately happy, "Are your shoes on?"
"Is your jacket on?"
I said & I ran outside.
Are we sang & danced in the falling snow together.
She was at her house & I was at mine.
And it still makes me smile now.
& by the time we were done dancing the snow had stopped.
We hadn't missed it.
I even took a picture of my tracks because they just made me smile.
Yep, I was twirling & leaping.
In college Rach & I fell in love with the song
The Snowfoot Waltz
by The Divers
It's a love story.
If you don't have it on your ipod YOU NEED IT!
Especially if you have kids or you live where it snows.
Best 99 cents you will ever spend.
& it will always be
Dance with me
Through the falling snow.
The temperature's fine for three-quarter time
And there's no better ballroom I know.
Dance with me
Through the empty streets.
The traffic is dead
And there's a tune in my head,
And without you it won't be complete
to do the Snowfoot Waltz.
Love Ya Rach!
