Winter Wishes

About this point in the winter, many of us are dreaming of warm weather.  While a warm weather escape can certainly help, we have to find creative ways to enjoy this season.  I promised myself not to spend the winter wishing it away.  Instead, I would embrace the opportunities it holds.  You may question just what opportunities –  but have you ever spent the afternoon in the snow and came into hot chocolate?  If it’s been too many years to count than I encourage you to spend even a few moments enjoying the great outdoors.  A brisk walk, filling a birdfeeder – whatever it is, find a way to connect with the outdoors.  And, certainly it’s a wonderful time to embrace the great indoors as well!  Have a hobby you’re behind on?  What about the indoor project you’ve been putting off?  It’s the perfect time to tackle it.  Need a special retreat?  A time to relax and rejuvenate? A short time away can really do wonders for the soul.   Wishing you a perfectly happy winter.
