Sometimes we forget....

I don’t know what it is about the doom and gloom
of winter, but it sure drags me out… I have a hard
time getting up. I want to snuggle down in my covers.
No sun light, cold… well, I should be grateful for no snow.

It isn’t the cold so much as the lack of sun. The mountains
are locked into the fog line, everything is grey. Just makes
me feel blah.

And I have 3 and half more months of this. I have things
I could be doing.. but don’t feel like it. I end up with the
ambition of a dishrag. Not even the holidays are perking
me up. But then again, I am not a Christmas person. Hate
the crowds of shopping. Grouchy people, who are on a mission and rudeness seems to be high on their list.

I just wiped out the other half of my post… Instead of the ho hum.
Let’s turn this around. Yea, it is drab out there in the white and grey of the day. But I have a warm house to be in.. others sadly don’t.
As I figure out what to have on the table this late afternoon for dinner, I realize, I have food to fix. And a choice of what that is.
And while I am far from rich, we do have enough money to cover our bills, get food, and buy gas to go where we go. Others do not.

I felt bad, because I had no shoes…..
Until, I met a man who had no feet……

Have a great day, enjoy what you do have..

He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.~Epictetus
