It’s the day after a mid-February snowstorm. Yesterday’s grey skies, freezing temperatures and heavy snow has transformed into a gorgeous Sunday morning.
The sun shines…the winds have calmed. The snow that landed on the bark and limbs of the trees remain in this picture, but only until the sun warmed the temperatures enough so the snow let go.
There’s just something about the day after that is so fresh, crisp and invigorating. Everything seems clean and bright…a new day lies ahead. The sunshine and snow removes the dullness and gloom presently less than 24 hours ago.
I wish in times of turmoil, sadness and challenge we could keep that feeling in mind, feel that newness, the ebb and flow of the natural change.
The day after brings hope, possibilities, renewal of spirit and mind…if one is attuned to those things. The day after will always come. It’s what we bring to it, like what we bring to what we have today, that makes the difference between hope and fear, happiness and sadness, calm or chaos. What does the day after mean to you?
