I know that many of you are in the midst of this cold, gray winter. Many of you like Winter. I've always been ambivalent about Winter, but this year has been different. I look outside and I see dreariness. I step outside and feel like the cold is an assault to my body. Sunshine?? A rarity. This week I forced myself outside to just try to enjoy the elements. Here is what I found:
Yes....it's gray. Yes...it's barren. But as I looked closer I noticed something. Look way up into the branches. Do you see them? Hiding in plain sight? Buds!! A little reminder to me that Winter will pass and Spring is on its way.
