This past weekend we experienced the January thaw. Not only was the weather warmer, but when we went for a walk our neighbors were outside too. After being frozen in our houses for a month or more, it was so good to feel the sunshine and to connect with friends again. We saw a couple of the neighbor boys playing in the puddles and the snow. I remember how much fun it was to stomp in the slush, to make rivers through the snow, to be able to play outside without having my face freeze off. I wish that the thaw was permanent, but I guess I don't want my life to go by too quickly. So I'll enjoy this mild January weather, and enjoy each day until it finally the right time for spring.
