Winter challenges me. You see, I really don't like the cold. It gets to me, it wears me down. It turns me into a person who braces agains the cold and limits time spent outdoors to scurrying from door to door.
It shouldn't be this way. Even though it's cold and dark, there are moments of intense beauty, instances of incredible gentleness. I need to be more open to these elements of wintertime.
This breathtaking photo by SouleMama was a perfect reminder. I'm grateful!
