It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 1, Page 11, Book 13
Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.
Isn't it true that decisions we make in haste are usually not the best ones. Waiting a while is most always the best. Winter is here and for me and it means I'm waiting for those storms to pass. Thoughts of spring are often in my mind. This year is going to be very different for me as I won't be going to my camper come April. For a good 6 months of the year that used to be my home away from home. I spent many happy hours there, close to nature and close to some of my family members too.
What I'll be doing with my time, now that I don't have a place to go to after winter is over, is a mystery to me. It may be that I'll just enjoy staying at home, working in my yard. I really can't imagine. Winter is a time for patience. Waiting isn't easy, but the storms will pass and no matter what, spring will come again.
On a slightly different note, did you know that there are some ways to ward off the colds and flu that often accompany winter. These are simple ideas can boost your bodies healing ability.
Drink lots of water
Use a humidifier
get plenty of sleep
Add some spices to your food,
Wash your hands often
I'm going to try very hard this year, not to let winter get me down. I'll wait and be patient.
