I used to like winter. But I do not find it so enjoyable anymore. The constant cold, the piles & piles of snow, the driving on bad roads, slush in my shoes...
However, I don't want to just "get through" winter again. I want to enjoy it.
I want to revel in the bite of the wind telling me I'm alive. I want to marvel at the beauty of snow covered landscapes, those lit by bright sun, dazzling under an impossibly blue sky, and those under dark grey clouds, sulky & foreboding. I want to make snowmen and snow angels, have snowball fights, and hide in snow forts. I want to delight in each individual unique snowflakes, and see the beauty in reddened cheeks.
I do not want to be bitter and cross because it's always grey and cold. I want to LIVE & FIND JOY IN THE MOMENT.
