In just a few days, February will come to an end and, hopefully, it won’t be too long before spring shows its face. When I look back, I honestly can’t say that I didn’t enjoy this snowy, bitter cold month.
Yes, there were so many grey, cold days – you had to think twice before leaving the house, but home became a joyful haven for me, a place to rest and rejuvenate my soul. There was lots of cooking and baking.
And yes, I finally finished the afghan I had been working on all year.
I loved curling up under a quilt with a good book, or doing a bit of writing or sewing.
And playing with different fabrics to decide what new projects to start.
So, I can’t say I won’t be happy to spend more time outdoors and begin potting up lots of beautifully colorful plants, but I admit to fully enjoying my hibernation. It reminded me of that old saying, “life is what you make it.” Isn’t it all really about choices? In most of the moments that make up our day, isn’t it up to us to find the joy? When we go to that dark place that makes us miserable, we have the ability to change that around by just changing our thoughts. I choose joy every time! How about you?
I hope you are all choosing joy today. Thank you all so much for stopping by.
