Although the days are slowly growing longer in the early part of winter, sometimes that’s hard to notice when it gets dark and snowy, without a hint of sunlight anywhere. We just have to take it on faith that spring will arrive after a while because, well, that’s always what happens.

And when those dark winter days leave us feeling gloomy, as if the good times are nothing but long-ago memories and far behind us, we also need to remind ourselves this won’t last forever. There will be plenty of delightful surprises in the future because that’s always what happens too!

Word-art that says "What a wonderful thought it is that some of the best days of our lives haven't happened yet."

  1. Our two offerings this week are kind of similar, aren’t they??
    Wishing you a wonderful 2017, Meg, full of Best Days 🙂 x

  2. The days are gray and white here, no much sunlight. I’m learning to appreciate them, I like to drive in the middle of the whiteness, it’s refreshing. But of course I miss spring, all the flowers and the sunshine. Have a wonderful and warm day dear Meg!

    • I went out in the snow yesterday, and it did feel kind of refreshing. Even better, my husband did the driving. Thanks for the warm wishes, and I’m nice and cozy at home right now! 🙂

  3. Yes, the spring will always come! We here in FL are cold too, but I know it will not last very long.
