It is the middle of Janurary. You are probably thinking about how cold the temperatures are and how hard the wind is blowing. Maybe you hear the crackling of a roaring fire or feel the warmth of grandma’s handmade quilted blanket. There could be the shifting of tiny ice cold feet and hands trying to get warm in your bed while the sound of giggles fill the room. Ah … winter.
Anyways it is 70 degrees in Kannapolis North Carolina! T shirts and short pants. Yep its a false start for spring. Even some of my flowers are being fooled into sprouting. The warm temperatures give hope that winter is ending and spring is around the corner. But this is just a prelude to what’s to come. In a few months those little sprouts will be beautiful colorful flowers.
How is the beginning of your new year? Have you already broke your new year’s resolution? If you have why not try again? Maybe you just had a false start. New beginnings can be tough so keep at it. Whatever your striving for could be around the corner.
Now back to the cold. It will get cold and even snowish before winter is over. So bundle yourself up. Wrap up those kids and take them for a walk or sled ride or let them win a snowball fight.
When you tuck them into bed tonight say a prayer for them. Give them a kiss and hug (and another drink of water).
God Bless and thanks for reading.
