Winter is probably my second favorite season. After the fading beauty of fall, winter is serene and quiet. The leafless trees whisper in the wind The parks and trails are empty. As a child I enjoyed being outside during the winter.
To me, winter is nature's way of slowing down so we all can rest, reflect, and recharge. I am reminded that there's a warm place waiting for me. Taking pause to be thankful for what I have makes for a grateful heart.
