Winter`s Last Gasp?

Today little bear was all excited to go outside for a walk because it has been so warm lately... so sunny... so different from the usual winter weather!

But... little bear discovered that winter does not release it's hold on us all that easily. He went for his walk and there was a thick frost covering everything... tree branches, power lines, grasses, bus shelters... all covered in hoarfrost.

It looked very beautiful and little bear discovered that he kind of likes winter... there is a beauty in winter that makes him very happy... So little bear wandered around the winter wonderland and enjoyed the scenery. Little bear has learned that it's best to just take what is there and enjoy it... or as other people say... when life hands you lemons, make lemonades!

Which is a good lesson for us as well.... we can grump and grouch about the weather and about the lack of a winter or the wet spring... but ultimately... we are happiest when we can enjoy what is placed before us. Maybe all it requires is a shift in perception. What are the possibilities present before us that we could enjoy?
