"I cannot conceive the Spring of lands that have no Winter. I take my Winter gladly, to get Spring as a keen and fresh experience."
-The Odd Farmwife, The Odd Farmhouse, (1913)
The weather has turned cold in my neck of the woods. I'm not particularly fond of cold weather, but this little quote has helped me put things into perspective.
As I drove home from work today, snow flurries swirled around my truck. I knew they weren't going to amount to anything, but I felt a childlike excitement as I watched the flakes dance about!
Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a "White Christmas" this year? It's been SO long since we have had snow on that special day. Snow White used to put snow on her Christmas Wish List every year!!
Perhaps the cold weather isn't such a bad thing after all. It ushers in the Holiday Season, and deposits us at Spring's doorstep.
Are you starting to get into the holiday spirit?
