gratitude-a-thon day 497: the days are growing longer: PARADE

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My mom loved this day. Because on this day, December 22, the days begin to grow longer. And, following in her footsteps, I love it, too. As if the season’s cold doesn’t make me cranky enough, the lack of light really emphasizes my disgust with old man winter. Hard to be all ho, ho, ho, when it’s dark at 3:15.

BUT, today is the day the whole thing turns around. My mood is lifting just thinking about it. Turn the sun back on, already. It’s time to head for the light.
