Rhonnie Scheuerman’s Inspiration Station For All In Need This Morning
Author Michelle Arbogast: “The Collector”
Here in Alabama, snow storm isn’t an every day event, even in winter. That’s why whenever one hit our town, my brother and I raced out back,
it’s snowman time.” He said grabbing my hand. But we didn’t build a regular snowman- we grabbed items from around the house to challenge our creative energy.One snowman wore Jeff’s camouflage hat and gloves’. Another sported a toy car racetrack for a belt. “Unique is always better,” Jeff said. No one had snowmen like ours.
Maybe that’s why when I got a place of my own and went shopping for decorations, I was drawn to a table of damaged, reduced items. One little figurine was a baby snowman with a red knit hat and scarf, holding up a broken Christmas tree. It dangled limply from the snowman’s stick-like hands. At first glance he looked hopeless.
Jeff would somehow make this work,I thought. At 25 cents the store was practically giving it a way. I bought him and super-glued his tree. Good as new.
Over the years, I’ve added more misfit snowmen to my Christmas collection, 50 pieces and counting. There’s a snowman salt shaker who somehow lost his paper pal, a tall andl slim snowman whose body is chipped: and round snowman who whose white hat has seen better days.
Jeff gets a kick out of them!. Unique is always better, when it comes to collection, or one-of-a kind brothers..
From Rhon …….
My mother used to say to my brothers and me,
“Be Unique”…. God made only one of you.
Don’t compare yourself to any one else !
Enjoy life and give it your all !!!!!
