of all the seasons, winter is not my favorite...it's cold and damp and though i love that the coldness allows the flowers to bloom in the spring and takes care of a rather large bug population, it leaves me feeling a bit isolated and alone. but maybe that is its purpose - to allow us to feel those feelings so when we are with friends and family that we appreciate their company? i tend to think in looking at both sides of the coin, the half full, yet half empty glass. i'm not so much oppotomistic as i'm practical and firmly convinced that worry will not change anything.
i wanted a big bang to finish up this month...but it seems that i'm going with a whimper - - - sorta. so as the fall slips into winter and november slips into december, i will remember too that all downs are accompanied by ups. today i'm grateful for warm beds, good coffee and things that comfort.
today's gratitude - on this day, i'm grateful for blankets, wooly socks, coffee and tea, comfort, beds with fluffy comforters and soft pillows. i'm grateful big picture windows that allow me to see the beauty that surrounds me, even when it's gray and brown. and i'm grateful that i know cold winds will bring bright sunshine and warm weather in the spring.
