Lean in close…..
I don’t hate the winter, I don’t hate this winter……..shhhhhhh
It did not start out that way.
Not at all.
I won’t go into the hell that was this last winter, the daily fight, the seemingly never ending bitter cold…..no, I won’t.
Somewhere along the way, I looked out a window, I stared, mesmerized at the large white flakes, had I seen the snow before?
I could feel it, from the shelter if my home, I feel the winter.
It was divine.
Let it go…..
I closed my eyes and shed the misery.
I dove into the cold.
Coming up for air, opening my eyes.
Safe from the driving wind and snow
Here in my home.
I no longer demand the heat of summer.
Once again, I am thankful for the winter.
I am here
Feeling the bittersweet love of a lesson hard learned.
