Christmas came and went and I missed my chance to get paperwhite bulbs
to force bloom like I usually do.
When the grocery store had little pots of hyacinths just about ready to bloom,
I knew I didn't want to miss my chance for some spring blossoms in January.

Once the holidays are over, winter stretches out long before us.
A reminder that winter always gives way to spring is welcome.

It's a principle that holds true in many areas of life.
Looking back on my life, there's ever been a hard time, a trial or a storm,
that didn't eventually come to an end.
The key is to not give up and quit in the middle of your winter.
Spring will come.
