In life, it seems that the difficulties make us appreciate things we might ordinarily take for granted. This winter has been a doozy already across most of the country. We have had a series of mild winters in my neck of the woods, so this one is proving to be more than a little inconvenient.
We are all looking forward to spring. Because of the difficulties of this winter, springs is going to be quite welcome.
Maybe it takes the winters of our lives to make us truly appreciate them coming to an end. We rejoice as we usher in the next season, even though there may be challenges in that season as well. In our region, spring is a glorious affair. It is also a season of flooding, thunderstorms, and tornados. Yet we welcome the next season and hope that it will be a little easier than the difficult one through which we’ve just passed.
