January Let Down
I want to be skiing in Colorado, or swimming in the warmth of the Caribbean but I'm stuck at home wishing for another time and another place. For years helpful hubby and I have used January to rest and start anew. But with so many losses in recent years, January has become the month of not again.
Do you remember being a kid? Do you remember how difficult it was to go back to school after the Christmas Holiday break? That's what I feel like. All the wind is gone from my sails and my thoughts are as frenetic as the weather we are experiencing. What I would do for just one month where the weather and my moods would co-operate.
Perhaps I have a bad case of SAD (seasonal affective disorder)? Lack of sunshine can definitely make me grumpy. I love turning my face to the sun, just like any sunflower soaking up all the Vitamin D I can in the shorter daylight hours.
Well, all things happen, and so January will come around every year. Darn it.
