14 Reasons Why Winter Isn’t So Bad

I have been ready for spring since December 26. I love the sun and warmth so much, I frequently forget to be grateful for the here and now – right in the middle of cold and snow.

So here’s a visual reminder for myself, and anyone else who has a countdown until the first day of spring (33 days!) – the Creator really did give us something to be in awe of during these days. Right here. Right now. Under all this snow.

 

Here are my 14 reasons why winter isn’t so bad!
