January 17 Life Is Good
It’s odd to look out the window here and still see snow – yes, snow – on the ground after a week. And, it’s interesting to me how the weather can have such a profound effect on not just our physical space but on our psyche. The day just feels different when you are looking out the same windows but seeing different things, when the cold air stings your lips and the sky fills your eyes with the same, but different, light. For me, it makes me feel life differently.
And life is good, indeed.
Today I am thankful for
- a break in the (unsafe part of ) the snow (even though I loved the feel of it, our fair city was undeniably ill-prepared)
- afternoons that could be spent just watching football, or not.
- frozen fruit – truly, there is nothing better than a frozen fruit smoothie when the grover is completely out of fresh produce.
For what are you thankful?
