Moving on...to greater things!

Its officially the last month of winter, and I am excited to say the least!


I am NOT a winter person, and usually I find it very hard to be productive during the cold, dreary and colourless winter months.  Sure in this part of South Africa our winter days are still sunny, but with every flower gone, trees without leafs and grass dry and dead I find it far too depressing.

Yes, I would be lying if I said I could not see the beauty, but for me its probably the worst off all with August winds howling around the house, making it impossible to want to spend time outdoors, but luckily its the last stretch, and I cant wait!

Every season has a story, and memories going with them, and sadly the worst ones are always easier to remember.  A while ago I shared with you my story of undergoing miscarriages, and this month will be the one year anniversary of loosing my last baby at four months pregnancy.

But with remembrance there's also acceptance, forgiveness and closure.  I want to concentrate on the good things, moving past the sad memories, seeing the beauty rather than remembering the pain.  I have so much to be thankful for in my life, and looking back at the past year, seeing more beauty, remembering the good things rather than bad, it is giving me the energy I need to get through this month.

I hope you too will see all there is to be thankful for, seeing the good in all things, remembering even sad times with acceptance, and look to the future with an open and forgiving heart.

There is light beyond every dark cloud, all that is left to do, is wait for the storm to pass....

Sorry for your loss :( I am loving that Spring is only one month away here in Australia. YOu're right - it brings more than just a change of season :)

You are so right, Marelize. So much in life is affected by how we deal with things and where our focus is. I hope this month brings you so much joy.

I know how you feel about the weather. It does the same to me when spring is just around the corner. Think good thoughts and keep your spirits up! The sun will shine soon and the flowers will be back again.
