I like the cold weather. Grant it, it's South Carolina so it wasn't really cold compared to most of the country. The low was around 16 a few days, highs in the 20s. But I was able to bundle up and be ok. But what I hate is the deadness of winter. Everything is gray and brown. There are no leaves on the trees, just brown branches, and twigs. It's so depressing. But a few days ago I took puppy Sam to a park we haven't been to in a while. As we were walking we got to a wooded area, but this time it was different. Of course, the trees had no leaves. Low and behold, there's a pond there. If it hadn't been for the leafless trees I would have never known that.
Then yesterday was hectic and we didn't get to go for our walk at the usual time. It wasn't until then that I noticed the days are getting longer. Woohoo, spring is on the way.
The last discovery came today. There was a dog that started on the trail the same time we did. Sam is not the friendliest dog around, so we went a different direction. Again I noticed things I had missed before. The walk seemed shorter and there was an incline.
So even when things seem deary and dead, there are still new discoveries to behold. When things look bad, there are always blessings along the way. Just wanted to share.
