It made me laugh and almost cry. It took me back to Spradling Avenue when I was a little girl. At that time my grandparents lived in the home my mother grew up in and they had a window unit. While watching Henry discover the fun of a window unit, I remembered the smell of that air, it is not like any other smell. I remembered the "Ahhhhhh's", trying to catch the air, and my family telling me to get away from it.
Henry is experiencing that fun now. I just love making memories with him that will last a lifetime. I know it is just a window unit, but the window unit in my memory bank was in a house where I knew I was loved and accepted. Henry will know in his Grandad's house he was the crown prince, and shared a name with the man who often called him "Hank" because he loved to joke with his mama and make her say "No Hank!"... and remember that window unit just like I remember my Mawmaw and Pawpaw's. So simple, yet so sweet.
