Where I live, sometimes it can seem as if winter goes on and on and on. Where ever one goes, generally one hears lots of weather talk which more often than not, means “gripe talk” about what’s wrong with the season known as old man winter. Everyone’s list it seems is similar. Winter is too cold, too dark, too icy, too treacherous, too dreary, too long… You get the idea. Winter is just too _____ fill in the blank!
Of course, there are those who do love winter. But it seems these folks are in the clear minority at about this point into the season. Still, no matter how you feel about winter; even those who dislike it most would probably agree that at times it is downright gorgeous.
I try to remind myself of this from time to time – like today when putting together this post. Or when enjoying snow globe days.
And just because you cannot see the beauty; this does not mean it’s still not there.
So this post is a reminder for me and perhaps for you as well, that there are indeed some wonderful things about winter after all.
There might even be a few things about winter to love!
