I'm not sure that I can wholeheartedly agree with Robert Frost, but Micah certainly does! We have had a winter full of winter: snow, ice, Alberta clippers, and bone-chilling cold. Early each weekday morning, I step into the cold pre-dawn air to tend to our farm animals before braving the challenging road conditions on my way to a new job which I started in November. Well, it's not just a job, it's a calling. More about that another time!
When I arrive home, as the sun is sinking into the beautiful lake that defines the western horizon on my entire (eleven mile) commute, Micah is waiting. Waiting with bright eyes and excited energy in his entire body. He is eager to romp in the snow, skid on the ice, and to leap and bound joyfully. If his wagging tail is any indication, he shares the belief with Robert Frost that "you can't get too much winter in the winter." In fact, he'd be in favor of winter all year long!
Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you joy.
