We are having an artic blast in the Midwest. I’ve been born and raised in Chicago, so you would think I’d be used to the cold. But I swear, it has never been this frigid.
As I sit in my home, wearing flannel everything and still feeling chilled, I couldn’t help but think about my trip to Churchill, Canada. I traveled there a couple of years ago to see the polar bears emerge from hibernation and meander to the Hudson Bay, looking for food. It was truly one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
Looking at the pictures, I was extremely touched by this one of a mother bear and her cub. They both seem so content and comfortable and trustful. Yes, that’s the word I’m looking for – trustful. They have both found their spot where they feel safe.
That’s what I wish for you – and for me. To find your safe space, your snuggle-up-and-believe-everything-will-be-alright space. It’s nothing that can be ordered on Amazon or researched by Alexa. It’s a place you have to discover on your own. One that makes you feel all cozy inside with a belief that all is right with the world.
Yes, that’s what I wish for you on this cold and frigid night. Along with a hot chocolate and a belief that warmer weather IS coming.
