"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome." by Anne Bradstreet
Yesterday the afternoon sun struck one of our star ornaments in just the right spot, and the sunlight streamed through the star's center. It reminded me that the winter solstice is near, marking the beginning of the sunlight's return. It gives me hope that I can last through the remaining months of winter!
