I usually love the cold weather
(though it is always only mildly cold here).
But today I have never been so glad to see winter's end!
This season we have battled against a tide of sickness.
Flu, gastro, fevers, common colds, eczema, asthma, and very persevering hives/allergies have not left us alone.
But the promise of spring has brought an end to our winter blues.
Of course, it isn't this way for many who suffer from long term illness.
So I'm thankful to be reflecting on (rather than enjoying) some small blessings that we have known this winter.
Sun shiny spots.
Goat's milk soap and udder cream from MooGoo.
Keeping active with the Wii when it's cold and wet outside.
And sunny day getaways.
