Week (25) of 52 of posting each Monday begun by Bernadette from Haddon Musings of things to be thankful for in our lives, that often go unnoticed, and to offset some negative things in the world around us.
Today I give thanks for the beauty of winter. It’s often that we think about the temperature, and how cold it is outside, when if we look around there is so much beauty. The fresh fallen snow that is breathtaking, especially as the sunlight makes it glitter and sparkle with light; the icicles glistening as they hang from the eave troughs and hydro lines.
The snow-laden branches on the trees, inspire us to take pictures and for some to paint. Children on toboggans going down a hill, or skating on the ice, take us back to our own childhood fun, and toes that feel numb as we head home to have some hot chocolate to warm up.
As we say good-bye to the colourful autumn leaves, sometimes with a foreboding of the cold weather ahead, we fail to acknowledge the beauty of Winter!
There’s one adage that indicate no two snowflakes are ever the same, but I don’t know how that has ever been proven!
