Over the past few days we have been enjoying slightly warmer than average temperatures. It’s been a welcome break to the winter chill … although admittedly Arizona winter chill is laughable in much of the rest of the US.
Beautiful days encourage gratitude. I love all kinds of weather.There’s nothing like the joy of dancing in the rain, or the peace you feel on a utterly silent stroll through freshly fallen snow, or the exhilaration of the wind blowing through the trees and chilling your cheeks.
On a recent day, it was warm and sunny enough to drop the top on the convertible while we were out running errands. We were grateful for the sun on our faces and the wind in our hair.
Warm, sunny days evoke conflicting emotions: get out and do something or simply sit in the sun and soak up the warmth. As we ran our errands, we both remarked how incredible the weather was — in January!
It happens everywhere – those unseasonable warm days. Several years ago, an October cruise along the Danube had us shopping for short sleeve shirts due to the wildly warm days.
While not short-sleeve warm, we picked up rental skis in Switzerland with our coats unbuttoned in the sunshine.
No matter where you live, no matter where you are, you can’t help but paste on a smile and enjoy a beautiful sunny day.
There’s a whole world out there just waiting to be explored. Embrace the gratitude and joy of sunshine.
