Winter wonderland


As Winter is in full swing with its cold weather and excitement, fires crackling in the hearth, children playing in the snow, we tend to forget how wonderful it is for families to gather around the fire and spend cozy evenings with hot chocolate and a good movie .

A life time has gone by for me as I raised my four daughters and continue to guide them while they journey through this maze we call life. Although winter is not my favorite season of year, the cold weather keeps me in doors more than I would like giving me a chance for greater soul-searching and setting goals to become a better person. In retrospect, the season, here in Virginia is short, but the year for improving is quite long. Soon I can go back to my long meditative walks as the days get warmer.
