It's a beautiful, sunny, snowy, 7-degrees-Fahrenheit day. I live in a state with 4 distinct seasons. Sometimes those seasons land all in one week. For now, we're definitely in winter.
I love how the fresh snow blankets everything and covers over all the dirt and gray. The whole world becomes bright and light, which is how I like anything.
The sunshine and bright white snow rejuvenate me.
So does a beach on the Gulf of Mexico, but that's not where I am. I'm in Indiana in February, so I'll take any sort of rejuvenation I can get.
Here's my happy, unstinky house in Winter. Also, Mr. Frosty is staying on my porch as long as he needs to. His huge plastic grin puts a smile on my face during the dreary months.
During a short walk--and walks in Winter are short because noses and toeses start freezing in the single-digit temperatures--I took a picture of one of the many trees draped in fresh snow.
Recently, I had a nice card from a friend. The saying on the front, though, is one that I will keep forever, a good reminder for anybody.
Remember George Bailey in It's a Wonderful Life? He had the gift of seeing what a difference he actually made in the lives of so many people. Remember that if you start doubting your worth in the lives of the people around you.
