We had our first snowfall of the year the other day. I don’t know about you, but we thrive on having a change of seasons. I know there are many parts of the world that experience temperatures with only minor variations, where at certain times of the year it may be a little bit greener or slightly more dreary, but as Canadians, we experience definite seasonal shifts.
Spring is for renewal. Not only a renewal of the greatness that Mother Nature provides, but also a renewal of Faith. Faith in your survival skills because Old Man Winter didn’t suck you into his swirling vortex of dreariness.
Summer is for replenishment. The long daylight hours restore your Vitamin D that was depleted over the long winter months. The bright colors, warm temperatures, and clean, fresh air help to renew your spirit from deep within.
Fall is for transition. The peaceful transition from the bustle of summer to the more calm and relaxing autumn months. Autumn is a time to enjoy the beauty that is all around you, and it is a chance to hang on to summer for as long as humanly possible.
Winter is for reflection and hope. An opportunity to slow down, take a breath, reconnect with family and friends. A time to reflect on the past year and look forward to the new one. New chances, new beginnings, loves, and friendships, which all begin with renewed hope as a blanket of snow covers the ground.
