Sun. How I have missed you. It’s been too long since I’ve last taken a walk and enjoyed your healing rays. Even when you did peak out, the cold, too intense to even breath at times, kept your guests away.
But you are back, at least for a little while. To melt the white quilt blended with brown.
Blended with brown. You know how this girl doesn’t like dirty snow.
Winter is the ultimate sanity tester; has been for centuries.
It will make or break you.
The best of spirits are dampened after a long winter … after too much time without comfort from the sun – often upon the teasing of the sun when he shows his face, only seeming to hide as the sharp wind overtakes the prairie land.
Workers of the land wake up and peer out the window, soon to learn another sheet of snow and ice wind blow across their ground, threatening their blessings to earn a living. I had better get out there, they say, and turn and sigh in surrender.
But not today! Today, the sun is shining, and hope is renewed.
Winter appears to be coming to an end … but then again, maybe not. What can we do about it?
We’ll enjoy this day …
… and restore a bit of our mind.
