To say it’s been a mild winter would be putting it, well, mildly. It’s January and the Magnolias are already in full bloom. I look forward to this time every year. For just a couple of weeks everything is pink and pretty. I love it!
I know I’m a wuss when it comes to winter. I don’t like being cold. (Is there anyone that does?) But wintertime helps me appreciate the nice weather we enjoy here the majority of the year. To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. (Ecclesiates 3:1) That being said, I’m especially thankful for how temperate this winter has been and consider it a special blessing to our little family. We put all of our things in storage when we moved out last summer. We don’t have any of our winter coats or our winter blankets. Right now we’re using an old quilt and this blanket I picked up at Ikea. We would normally be freezing in this old house, but we’ve been just fine. Just one more thing I’m thankful for.
