while snow is still on the ground
let's be honest. winter and its deep lathering of grey days is wearing us down. there are hours when the monochromatic landscape bites the edges of our hearts. we feel sad. agitated. exhausted. it feels like everything takes twice as much effort.
and it does.
we need sunshine and hope and enthusiasm, despite the contemplative nature of the season at hand.
we need to be that sunshine for each other.
if we can muster it, let's do our best to smile more and offer words of encouragement where ever we notice luster is lacking. let's let the people around us know we care. let's ask for help if we need it.
let's lift ourselves headlong into spring while snow is still on the ground.
we can do it.
