We’re all adjusting to the cold and snow moving in for another Winter reign. Chilly! Fortunately, the temperature inside is warm enough, and we are cozy and safe from the elements. It gives me more to be grateful for, and more from which to learn about patience.
The other day the weather report announced that we just had the coldest day since last February. The first thing that popped into my head was that mathematically that means we only have really cold weather for about one third of the year! Yes, that is good news because up here in the north land it often seems to last longer when we’re in the throes of it all. When I look at the facts though, it’s not so bad. And I have plenty to keep me busy during the cabin fever season.
First on my list is to knit my husband a hat. He will have forgotten picking the yarn color last year, and will hopefully be surprised. I should have just enough time to complete, and put it under the tree. And then there’s the paper clutter that’s been on hold under a table cloth, just waiting for me to dig in and release it for recycling or filing. And I haven’t watched a movie in months – can’t wait. I’m popcorn deprived lately. So, good things come from the cold too – if I look for them! That’s what 12 Step Programs have taught me to do.
