Winter is Good

It's going to get up into the 50's today and I am so excited that I woke up at 6:30 this morning ready to conquer the day.

This winter has been so very, very long...but I am thankful for times of long-suffering like this, because it reminds us to be thankful and joyful and to soak in the warmth and goodness of days like today. And when spring finally makes it's way to this sleepy town in Ohio, I will be so happy, so full of life, so ready to spend my days out enjoying it, that I don't think there will be any room for dissatisfaction.

That's what winter can do. That's why winter is good. It's a restart, a new beginning, a time to realize just how important it is to breath deep and to enjoy the warmth of life.

  2. I cannot agree more with this entry! We're supposed to get warmer starting tomorrow and I am praying it sticks around this time! But it's true, winter really does remind us to be grateful for spring :)

  4. Very true, I love how the seasons help give us a fresh perspective on life and a renewed sense of purpose. Honestly, I wish our seasons were a little more pronounced out here in the Northwest. We kinda skipped winter this year and we are a snow loving family, but I guess there is always next winter. I know you guys have had a long, cold winter this year so here's to hoping spring shows up soon! Enjoy your day!

  6. This is exactly why I miss winter! When the weather never changes it is not as easy to appreciate spring and summer.
