Thankful-Day 24 (Seasons)
Today we had our first indication that winter is on the way. Cold winds chilled the bones as we took our dog for a spin around the park. Even my hubby was cold, a rare occurrence. I don't like the ice on slippery roads but I have to say that winter can be a beautiful season here. Snow lays on pine trees, sticks to leafless trees and allows the wind to swirl it into beautiful patters as it covers everything with a thick blanket of clean, white loveliness. Each year, where we live, there is a vivid reminder that not only does our valley have four seasons that come and go as surely as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, but there is the reminder that all of us go through seasons of life. Within each season are the things that are difficult or frustrating, but along with that there is always so much beauty that can be found, if you are truly looking.
