“Mommy! Mommy, wook! It’th thnowing!” shouted the little boy, as he ran around the yard, trying to catch the small white flakes as they came towards the ground.
Miranda looked up at her child, wondering what on earth he was talking about.

Miranda fell to her knees, tears in her eyes, as she thanked God for this miracle, and hugged her child close.
