Today the neighbors headed outside. With slightly warmer temperatures, blue skies, and sunshine, we walk about on sidewalks glistening from snowmelt. The world is so bright from the sun reflecting off the snow on lawns that we wear sunglasses and shield our eyes with our hands.
The snow makes the sunshine brighter than ever. And the recent dark and cloudy days make the contrast even more extreme. I love the beauty of contrasts. I will remember this bright, bright day when we’re back in deep, gray winter. The sun will come, and it will seem so much more glorious for what we’ve endured.
