It has been very cold and snowy in Ohio during this month of January,
not to mention the endless gray skies!
Snow at Christmas is festive, but not in January when the reality of winter hits.
Heavy coats and boots weigh us down as we try to make our way out of the comfort of our homes.
The bright side is this: there is less than a week left of January and February is a short month!
The days are getting longer!
Both January and February are those months of recuperation, collecting our thoughts, and cleaning out closets of unwanted stuff. It is the preparation for Spring!
Maybe January is a necessity.
