Yes, it is winter but the sun is shining. I stood at my bedroom window for a full minute this morning (as the “Prompt” suggested) and I was reminded of spring. There is still a hint of a green grassy lawn and the rays of the sun cast promising shadows. Directly below my window is the copper pot which holds our garden hose all coiled up and ready to go. The snap dragons are still alive and thriving even though we had some severe freezes just days ago. The forest to the side is still barren but somehow, along with the sun, they too seem hopeful. What I see from my bedroom window on this winter morning is the promise of spring.
