The sun is shining again, but it's much colder today.
The damp air has been replaced with an icy chill.
Feels like more arctic air is heading our way.
Most of the people that head south for Winter have left our resort community. By the end of the month, the rest will be gone.
Our sub-division will be like a little ghost town.
The ones that are left will keep each other company until Spring.
As our friends and neighbors are sitting on sandy beaches, watching beautiful sunsets over the water.....we'll be here....tucked inside by a fire, with a glass of wine in hand, watching gorgeous sunsets of our own.
The anticipation of the days getting longer, and the sun setting a little bit higher north in the western sky as each day eases ever closer to Spring causes you to appreciate the change in seasons more, I think.
Not that I have anything against going south for the Winter. I would if I could!! But I cannot. So I must learn to enjoy what I have in front of me. Open my eyes to the blessings around me.!!
Yes, it's cold...wear a sweater. It's windy...wear a scarf! If it's snowing, put on those boots that you wanted so badly this past Fall!! If you want to look tan...buy a lotion with a bronzer in it. If you are really tired of the same old Winter stuff....then throw a "Beach Party"!! just for fun. It's all good. There are those that actually LOVE Winter. My grand kids ski, and snowboard all Winter long! They even like to play in the snow....just play in it!!
I guess what I'm trying to say is...whatever the weather is where you are, I hope you are able to find something fun to do, and enjoy your day. Today only comes once.
