Winter is the Warmest Season + How to Dress Warmly for WinterWednesday, February 24, 2016
Sometimes, there is a small lull in the winter winds - a little break, perhaps. Although the chill still seeps through your flesh and tickles your bones, the sun comes out to remind of one of life's greatest treasures: hope. We do not forget that winter is still in our neighborhood, rattling our windows and asking to come inside. We do not forget how it howls our names in an effort to trick us. But on mornings like these, when there is a promise leaking from the Earth's voice - the promise of a new beginning, the world can't help but let a grin sneak onto our flaking lips.
On top of all our sharing and giving, winter brings us into cozy layers, flaming logs, and thick woolen socks. Don't misunderstand - I am ready the snow ridges to melt away as they have begun, and I am ready for the birds to sing every morning, not just pleasant ones, and I am ready for earlier suns. But I do love the hope and love winter brings out in us all.
Winter is, in so many ways, the warmest season of all.
What do you love about winter? No cheating! I challenge you to find something you love about a cold, wet, mess. Also, how do you layer your clothes to stay warm?
