I Love My Snow Globes


As a little girl, I always dreamed of owning a snow globe.
I thought they were the most wonderful thing to be able to own.
My cousin had one, you know the cheap, travel, touristy snow globe.
I was so jealous.  I thought she was the luckiest girl on earth.


My husband discovered my childhood dream of owning a snow globe
and surprised me one Christmas with a snow globe of my very own. 
I can't begin to tell you how thrilled I was.


And each and every year since I discover a new snow globe under the tree for me,
either from my dear hubby or from one of my children.


And I love them all.
Every Christmas I feature some of the snow globes in our living room on top of the piano.
It is the focal point of the living room and your eye is drawn to them immediately as you come in through the front door.


And every Christmas season as I lovingly take out each snow globe and put them on display
 I feel like I am the luckiest girl in the world.


Not because I own a snow globe, or two or three, or more.


I am the luckiest girl in the world because I have a husband and children who love me so much.


Sure, owning a snow globe may have been a silly childhood dream
but because it was important to me
it became important to them.


So, each and every snow globe is just a tiny representation of the love of a family.


And like our family, each and every one is beautiful and unique in its own special way.


Some are immediately stunning.


Some have intricate details that take your breath away.


Some play the most beautiful music.


And some don't even need winding up,
they just play!


And there's some that aren't even snow globes,
but are just as special and are part of the family.


I hope you enjoyed my snow globe collection.
Every time I look at them they make my heart warm and put a smile of my face.
And I am reminded again and again of how lucky I am to have such a special family.

  4. I love them too, but don't have one yet. I used to make them with old jam jars (jelly jars) and glitter, when I was a little girl! xx
