Boo! We got several inches of snow again today. It shouldn’t have been a surprise since we live in an area that every year has what we call fake spring. It’s a brief warm up that gives us hope, gets us outside and dreaming of summer, and then we get hit with winter again. It makes us sad, and yet we fall for it. Every. Single. Time.
So I was sad today thanks to the weather. I want some dang sunshine and warm breezes. I want to sit outside. I want to see some green grass. While I know this snow and cold weather won’t last, I’m sick of it.
What do you do when you’re sad and frustrated? I turn on the Hallmark channel. The movies are usually very similar and predictable, but they always end on a happy note. So I watched a couple sappy movies. Then I video chatted with a friend whom I haven’t talked with in several weeks.
I’m no longer sad. It was great catching up with my friend (and long overdue!). It was also good to be distracted by happy endings instead of focusing on my frustration. And I’m thankful for that.
