He had a partner that fit right on top of him and created a complete snowman. His other half, sob sob, died of a broken heart at the hands of daughter #3 or as I now call her, the mug slayer. Yes, she killed my other favorite mug when she threw him head first into the depths of a hard, empty, stainless steel pit (aka – the sink).
I have lots of mugs and cups. But I find myself washing this one over and over so that I can reuse it later in the day. I received the set as a “mug exchange” gift two years ago at a Girlfriends event at our church. And it was love at first sight.
Ever since daughter #3 (here is her mug shot – get it?) killed the other mug, the family knows better than to lay a finger on my one-and-only-remaining snowman mug. He’s mine. And I love him!
You know who else has a favorite something? God does!

6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
