As winter arrives and the snow falls, the nature around us takes on a new look. While I personally prefer the green leaves, the bright flowers, and the fresh smells of spring and summer, a goal of mine has been to become more of an observer throughout these cold months in order to discover the beauty and wonder that is winter.
Our world is buzzing with information. Information from the internet, from the news, social media, podcasts, the radio. Some of it’s helpful and some of it’s not. But I promise you, the buzz that you get when you are enveloped in the outside world will always teach you something positive and useful. Mother Nature is trying to teach us every single day! All we need to do is look around and pay close attention.
I know that it has officially been spring for almost two months now, but to me it feels like the season has only just arrived! Chuck and I spent our wedding anniversary weekend in Traverse City, Michigan this past week, and it seemed as if the world was only just beginning to wake up from its long winter slumber. The thing I have learned about spring is that if you blink . . . you might just miss the best parts of its performance.
