Midweek Meditation -- On Four Seasons

My Grandma S often said, "You have to have all four seasons."  I do not remember what else she had to say on that subject.  She did have an amazing garden, though.

"Four seasons fill the measure of the year;/ There are four seasons in the mind of man."     ~ John Keats

"I came from Mechanicsville, Virginia, where you have four seasons."     
~ Jason Mraz 

"I have three daughters. I wanted them to be raised where there are real seasons and where everyone their age wasn't trying to get into movies."     
~ Chevy Chase 

"May you be blessed with peace and safety in all four seasons."     
~ Chinese Proverb 

"I know I am but summer to your heart, and not the full four seasons of the year."     ~ Edna St Vincent Millay

I do not like winter.  It is not just the cold, but also the darkness.  Fall starts out so lovely, but by now, it is ushering in my least favorite season.  I will try to remember this last quote...

"You must take personal responsibility.  You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself.  That is something you have charge of."     ~ Jim Rohn

  1. I love the fall and winter (at least until March when the spring should really start!). I loved the snow last weekend. The darkness not so much but I don't expect perfect!
