Waiting for Wonderland

The weather forecasters have predicted our first significant snowfall tonight. But outside, the cadence of the falling rain beats on as the drops splash against the earth. The falling rain is sinking deeper into the soil, as does the old year into memory. What will tomorrow bring? A winter wonderland? I hope so.

A wonderland. I like the sound of that. That makes me hopeful and full of anticipation. It’s fun to dream of wonderful things to come. We all do it, right? Despite the fact that life will pepper us with moments that sting and events that stop us in our tracks. But that’s part of it. Best to focus on the good stuff and make the most of it.

Happy New Year. Here’s to all the good stuff coming our way.
