When I’m feeling blue..Works for Me

What works for me when I’m getting blue because everything is white and bleak and cold?  I have to admit–I’m an emotional person.  If the sun is shining, I’m happy.  If the days are long and dark, I’m blue.  So, what do I do?


I’m hoping that just by writing this, it will remind me of how temporary life is.  That short days that are dark are still wonderful because they are filled with people you love.  How much sadder it would be to be without loved ones?

Cold is hard, but being indoors is nice.  Candles can be lit and enjoyed as early at 4:30 p.m. Getting outside can be challenging, but it’s also rewarding.  It makes you feel like you’ve conquered something just by getting out there.

When all is said and done, the majestic red cardinal reminds us that he is hardly visible when all is green and plush.  How much more do we appreciate him on days like today?

He comes for his food, rain or shine.  He is happy because his creator is smiling on him today.  Just thinking about him makes me smile.
