Recess duty. Finally warm enough to go outside. Lots of clean, white fluffy snow to roll in, run in, dig in and jump on. I wish I had joined them. I need the exercise too. Everyone was smiling. Everyone was getting along.
“This is fun!”
“I can . . . now!”
All these shenanigans helped to thaw this cold, wintry feeling I’ve been having. With all this cold and snow, it is easy to get overwhelmed. The mid-winter blues has laid down tons of curriculum demands and family chores.
Okay, I’m trying to stay positive, not let the negativity take over. I realize it is human nature to remember a problematic situation, so as not to be caught there again. I am not denying that winter is long, just trying to recall that Spring will come, the sun will shine, and this too will pass.
