It looks like I’m pondering in this pic.
And I guess I am.
I’m pondering the weather.
When everything turns cold and bare, some of us tend to believe that it’s winter in our souls too.
It’s a kind of winter that seems like it will never end.
All the leaves on our Tree of Hope are gone, and we feel barren.
I have to admit that when Ryan was killed in the fire, it took years before there was anything green growing on my bare branches.
It’s when you think you have only one season in your life–winter.
And you get to where you stop expecting springtime and stay under the covers to sleep it off.
Maybe you’ve heard the voices in your head that keep saying, “Don’t get up, don’t get up!”
Can you identify?
Or, is it like you have only one word in your vocabulary; “Unfair!”
And it repeats like an echo.
Girl, I do understand the unfairness of life, and feeling like you’ve been robbed of your future.
You might be close to giving in or giving up.
That’s the bad news, but here’s the good news…Spring always follows Winter.
It’s as perennial as perennials.
And Spring is best spent with somebody you love. (“I” to “We”)
