I’ve been waiting for you for a long time. You’re like a long-lost buddy who has finally returned home. It was exhausting to wait for you. You took so long to come and visit, but now that you’re here, the wait fades rapidly. Looking at and experiencing winter, I assumed that everything would be boring, dark, and dismal but with your arrival, it appears that colors have returned to nature, making everything feel brighter, wilder, and more alive. With your arrival, everything feels brand new again. If summer is a glass of lemonade and winter is a crossword puzzle at candlelight, you are a cup of hot coffee at daybreak. You exude joy and friendliness and I greet you with open arms.
