I think it's over for a while. Winter, that is. (I whisper it quietly, I don't want to tempt the Fates!)
There's beauty in every season but for me, there's such a special sweetness to Spring. Discoveries waiting around every corner and old friends who have returned. There's a moment every Spring when I'm sitting in the afternoon sun and I feel victorious; I made it through the Winter!! This year it took a little while longer to get to that point but it's here now, the realization that I can wait for what's worth waiting for and that patience pays off. (And that patience is something we have to practice every day.)
Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. ~Rachel Carson
Today will be spent contemplating the beauty that resides in me, grateful for the old friends in my life that have returned (perhaps they never went away and it's me that has returned - hmmm, another blog for another day) and ready for the discoveries that wait for me around every corner.
And to remember the value of patience.
