I have to hand it to you people that live in cold climates. I don’t know how on earth you do it. This is the coldest place I’ve ever lived. The longest winters. The extended gray days tell me that I will never beat the blues till I see sunshine. How do you do it?
I look for bright spots in small spaces.
So it is yet again a gray damp day. I look out the window and I see bare branches and brown grass. Not even a bird in sight.
Oh, how I yearn for warm days and sunshine and green leaves sprouting. Plants pushing gently up from the earth. I never realized till now how very much I need that to sustain me.
I beg you winter months, please pass quickly. I just want to see butterflies and birds building nests and something green again.
How do you beat the winter blues?
