All right. I will admit, at this very moment, there is a Christmas movie on my television. I know spring is right around the corner. I know we have months until the jolly season rolls around. But you know what? I don't care. I love Christmas, and I will happily celebrate it every day!
Sure, if we did celebrate it every day, it would lose its specialness. But it's pretty fun to crank up the carols when it's ninety degrees outside. Not that it's ninety outside right now. I do live in Colorado, after all. With snow on Pikes Peak and a little still on the ground, my heart thinks it should be Christmas, even though my brain knows otherwise.
I've never been a big fan of summer. I love blankets and sweaters and coats and sleeves. I enjoy hanging out in front of my space heater and snuggling under my electric blanket. Thankfully, our Colorado summers are pretty mild. Low humidty, decent temps. Not a bad place to be!
And I can get through it...because I know on the other side of spring and summer are fall and winter. So while I'm enduring the budding flowers and trees (really, they are lovely!), I'll watch a Christmas movie here and there. Perhaps hum a Christmassy tune. Maybe even belt out a verse of O Holy Night. And dream of...
