Winter just likes to hang on. It is a great lesson in: Determination. It knows it's course and it is going to run it. There are no surprises. We know what to expect of it. In December when it is 20 degrees we complain how cold it is. By January and it has been minus 10 and minus 20 degrees, we look forward to the days when it is again 20 and we say, "It's warm out today." That too is a lesson in determination.
The hardest part is being home bound, stuck indoors. How I long for any sign of a Spring flower to force it's way out of the earth. Until then, we wait, we shovel, we keep warm. That too is determination.
