We have entered the season of short days, and long dark nights. Dark nights can be hard. But they can also be good. I used to really dislike the darkness until I came upon the saying, “it is better to light a candle, than to curse the darkness”. It’s so true. Curling up with a cozy blanket, and watching the light from a few burning candles can relax and soothe me when it’s cold and dark.
Dark mornings also allow me to see the first glimpse of the sun; a promise of good things to come. When the sun begins to peek its head over the horizon it gives me hope of a beautiful day, new beginnings, and fresh outlooks.
It’s been a really tough 19 months and we all feel a little like a bulb that has been stepped on and squished into the cold, dark soil; but soon that bulb will push it’s head through that soil and begin to bloom. And, so will we!
