Just around the corner.....

I'm not really a lover of winter. You see, since I had Hannah, whenever I get cold (which is often) my fingers freeze. They actually go white and numb. No biggie really-until the kids want to go outside. It's more of a nuisance than anything, but it does hinder my winter activities. Needless to say, the kids and I stay inside much of the winter. However, the thought of winter, or snow for that matter, is pleasant. I am in awe that our father designed the world as he did...knowing "Canada" needed the winter. Beyond that, I love the seasons...especially the transitions of them all. I can't say I love one more than the other (although, I do like the heat)..but I do welcome fall and the beautiful emotions it envokes in me. On days like today, when it's just too cold for me to venture any farther than picking Hannah up at school (Yes!! I drove!!), with a million things I "should" be doing, I ponder on the uniqueness of our country, and the love of a God who designed it. I feel grateful. I feel loved. I feel "right". Today, I will not complain about the cold. (Remind me tomorrow morning when I leave for work-at 6:30- that I will not complain..lol). I will enjoy the knowledge that God loves me and my country, and be grateful that I have seen snow, felt cold, and occasionally, enjoyed sledding. And ofcourse, remember that spring is JUST AROUND THE CORNER...

P.s. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BIG BROTHER!!

Amy,
Our children LOVE the winter but by January, I am already dreaming about Spring flowers!! Don't forget I am very willing to come flower shopping with you and will help you plant too if you want!
