“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” ~ Edith Sitwell
I am one of those people that looks forward to winter. I don’t like being snowed in much…at least not for a long period of time. I don’t like power outages. I don’t like icy roads. But I love to snuggle by fires. I love to wrap a blanket around myself and curl up with a book. I love hot cocoa in the evenings. I love long pajamas. And I love looking outside and seeing a blanket of beautiful white snow in the yard.
Winter is the one time of year when our schedule isn’t bogged down by soccer games and Scout activities. We don’t mind soccer and Scouts, but it’s nice to have time to do other things. As a family, winter is a good time to catch up on movies we have wanted to see. We take a few more indoor field trips on the weekends. We are able to have a few extra moments to just sit and talk around the table and appreciate time we have together.
