I just want to say....Hang in there.
I see the snow that covers everything and makes it so difficult for you to get in the car and drive anywhere. Everything you do is an effort and the threat of another storm looms. To my farming friends.... the water will thaw and the mud will dry. To my city friends.... the snow will melt and the sun will warm your faces.
One day you're on the dark side of Winter.....
And you find yourself only facing one side of the world.
But the sun will come back and the warmth will return with it.
It always does.
Life is two sided.
Pull back the dead leaves and the lingering snow. Take a look at what is coming.
How the Pittosporum prepares for it's yearly fragrant show.
and the little frog who winks at you from the yard art in the lavender.
Come sit on my porch, in the sunshine. Warm your bones and feel the sun on your face. I'll fix you some tea and bring you a sweater. The air is still cold but the sun feels so good.
Read the wall hanging that I gave to my mom many years ago and now hangs next to my front door.
Sit here as long as you want.... until you know, in your heart, that Spring is coming. Until the sun sets.... as it always does and life feels good again.
