There is something to be said for never allowing your inner child to die. Too many of us allow ourselves to become old and then we start to do the same complaining that annoyed us when we were little. All of a sudden, we become totally out of touch and it can feel as if it happened in an instant. Armand’s mother is not one of these people, though.
She might be 101 but she is not about to let herself turn into a shriveled old maid who doesn’t know how to have a good time. They were recently driving down the road after some snow had recently come down. While most of us would probably cuddle up inside, this woman was not about to allow herself to be subjected to the dangers of cabin fever.
After all, life is for living, right? Luckily for us, Armand was there to capture this awesome moment. This mother did not want to stay in the car. She asked her son if he would be willing to pull over to the side of the road, so that she could have the chance to play in the snow. As you might have imagined, he said “yes” without having to think about it for too long.
He took video of this hilarious mother and her winter frolicking. We are jealous of all the fun that she is having. When she decided to take the time and effort to craft the perfect snowball, it was clear to see that her 101 years of experience were coming in handy. This is definitely one of the finest snowballs that we have ever seen.
If you got as much of a kick out of this video as we did, be sure to pass it along to your closest friends and loved ones as soon as possible. We could all use a reminder of the importance of nourishing our inner child. There is no reason to become an old grump, no matter how long you have been on this planet or what you have been through in the past.
Moments like these are not going to last forever. The snow may be frightful to some but for those who know how to have a good time? There is nothing wrong with using the current weather to have a little bit of fun. Just be sure to put on your heavy coat, your hat, your gloves and your galoshes!
