Spent the morning at the clinic waiting to be told what I already knew. I have a sinus infection. So I’m a little late in getting a post done. This has been a much easier winter for us than last year, but I really feel sad for our neighbors on the east coast. At least the Midwest is somewhat prepared for winters that seem to last forever
I wrote this last year about this time when we were battling our own endless winter. It seemed appropriate to share again today.
Trying to find the beauty in an endless winter is like looking at your reflection in a mirror and hoping to recapture your youth.. It seems that new life will never surface again. Everything is cold and dead. The green existence of spring seems eternally wrapped in a blanket of white. Somehow we hang on to the hope of a new day when the sun moves closer and embraces those withered limbs and forces life to bud forth again. Spring – will we ever see you again.
BTW, our temps are rising to 10 degrees today and that’s above zero. Stay warm my friends!
