winter is a good thing... right?!?

Ever since we returned from our vacation to Mexico, I've been trying to convince myself that living all YEAR long in a place where it's sunny, warm and downright beautiful is overrated.

I mean, seriously...

If it was hot all year long, wouldn't I miss the joy of spring flowers, budding trees and chirping birds?

If it was always summer, would I really appreciate getting away for vacation?


If it was always warm, would our minds grow dull? How would we ever finish homework?


It it was sunny everyday, would I grow tired of putting on sunscreen and want to stay indoors?


If it was summer all year long, would I miss hot cocoa, reading a book while snuggled under a blanket, or going for a brisk walk on a cold day?


If it was always beautiful outside, how would I concentrate to get my work done? Or clean my house?


If it was always warm, sunny and beautiful, wouldn't I get bored with the never-changing temperatures?


If it was always summer, wouldn't I miss Facebook, blogging and e-mail? I mean, I would be able to go outside to actually see and interact with people?


I don't think so. But I'm trying to convince myself.

this sounds like the litany i go through when people ask me why we live here. i keep telling myself that it's a spiritual discipline to go through a chicago winter, one that refines and makes one appreciate more the blessings of good weather!
