Living in the midwest it’s easy to forget that not all winter days are gloomy. The gray becomes ubiquitous.
So seeing sunshine and blue skies and shimmery snow out my window yesterday made me smile all day. I could even ignore the 14ºF temperature outside.
While it’s true that I enjoy summer’s showy colors, a February landscape dressed in neutrals is appealing, too. It makes me feel grounded.
I believe that sometimes you’ve got to remember to stop and enjoy what is, especially when you live somewhere where a pretty winter day is a rarity. Yesterday, grateful am I.
