The Joy of Snow

We have been loving this heartwarming video this week - a moment of pure joy from an 101 year old woman who, while travelling in the car with her son, jumped out of the car when it had stopped briefly, just so she could play in the snow.

Her unbridled joy, her childish enthusiasm, the careful way she makes a snowball, and her son's clear love for his mother and his delight in this moment are so special. Later, this video, which was shared around the world, made it onto the local news, and her son filmed her watching the news story - this video of her watching herself on television is equally touching. And, throughout both videos, you can hear her son chuckling behind the camera, enjoying these special moments with his mother. Very touching.
