Winter’s Over.

It’s summer. It’s muggy and it’s raining. The windows are open and warm, muggy, rainy, summer breezes are filling every corner of the house. I spend nine months of winter waiting for this moment; the kid’s in their beds, the rain on the roof, the breeze through the window…the nothing, and everything all at the same time. It would mean almost nothing if there wasnt the wait, the anticipation for this one moment. It’s the only good that comes with our harsh Canadian winters – how much they make you appreciate the brief summer months. In one of my previous posts, I wrote about how this winter especially *sucked*, for many reasons. Without indulging, I will say that my belief in the goodness of people was severely put to the test. Even those you believe should be closest to you, can surprise the hell out of you sometimes. People, I’ve decided, are a lot like the seasons. A shitstorm of cold, bitter harshness from some can really make you appreciate the warmth and kindness from others. I have some really good people in my life, and I thank them for being my summer after a long, bitter winter. I’m over the cold. I think it’s time for me to just sit and enjoy the warm, summer breeze for a while.
