I have a hard time figuring out how today can be the first day of winter when it has been cold and snowy for over a month now.
Either way, today happens to be one of my favorite days of the year. I know that no matter what happens, tomorrow will be brighter. And all this gaining of daylight will lead up to warmer temperatures, budding trees and summertime. Today is a beginning and an end.
To celebrate the arrival of winter, I stayed up last night to watch the lunar eclipse. It was amazing to see. Some were calling it a magical night, and I must agree. There is something special about being able to witness an event that so rarely happens. Happy Winter!
