Winter

Many people complain, and even try to leave, but not me.  Yes, it is cold, but I am warm in my climate-appropriate clothing.  The snow is so soft and clean and beautiful.  It falls on the landscape like a soft down blanket.  The children love to play in it, they roll in it, they eat it, they dig in it.  I would rather wield a snow shovel than go to the gym any day.  Winter is part of Mother Nature’s cycle of life, without winter, could we have spring?

When I get cold and need to go inside, there is nothing better than snuggling under a warm blanket wearing my hand knit wool clothing, and picking up a knitting project or a good book.  Having a warm child on you is nice too.  It is a good time of year to care for the areas inside one’s home that tend to get neglected when we are all outside enjoying the summer.

How do you make peace with winter?

  1. The same way! I love winter for all of the same reasons. The only thing I dislike is bundling the kids up in the morning and the struggle to get them in their seats.
