On a very cold day like today,Litsa!

Written by Litsa Bolontzakis on. Posted in My thoughts

On a very cold day like today, what do you do!If you are a native Canadian you are happy and you know how to enjoy the day!If you are from another country and from the south, you will spend the day feeling unhappy and you will be dreaming of a warm place in the sun!

For the millions of people that made Canada their home, here is a piece of advice, do your best and enjoy the sun and how brilliant it is today, but don’t let it fool you, it is deadly cold and you better stay inside looking out at the beautiful landscape with the snow pure and fresh like a white blanket,

On a very cold day like today,

On a very cold day like today, Litsa!

covering everything as if to protect life from the extreme temperatures!

 The sun today will try to keep us warm but it will not succeed and then again nothing is in vain because our precious sun gives life to everything it touches!

I feel life is good!

I remember my mother was wintering in the house in Greece and every time we spoke on the phone she would brag about the nice weather and how pleasant it was in Greece!

She would say I only need a little light coat when I go out, it’s so nice!

There is nothing that annoyed me about my mother but this did, and I remember once I told her that in Africa it was even warmer ma, please pray that the weather doesn’t turn crazy on us and you get our weather and we get yours!At least we are so well prepared!But some things never change! People this is Canada!
Winters are cold, very cold! Stop complaining about it and start living!

If you can afford it follow the sun if not do your best with the snow and the cold.

There are so many advantages when the snow falls, it is magnificent!The picture changes and its like you are on another part of the planet!It is clean and fresh and it covers all the imperfections!

On a very cold day like today, Start the fireplace!

To have a fireplace with a roaring fire, a good glass of wine and friends that you can have a stimulating conversation with is a gift!

The cold weather brings you closer to the one you love, think about it! Hugs, kisses, love, perfection!

On a very cold day like today, start cooking!

The kitchen is a magic place to be on a day that the snow is falling and you have all the ingredients to create a new meal! The house smells divine and the family that comes in from the cold is so happy to belong to a house that is alive and inviting!

On a cold day like today gather the kids all around you and read them a good book! You will create a memory that will keep them company for a long time! And please don’t let anyone and anything mess with the moment!

It is all a matter of perception! You do the best you can with what you have!

But people will complain about the cold, about the heat, about the rain about the wind!

It is part of life! It makes them happy, they have nothing else to talk about, so the weather is topic of conversation, but never positive always negative!

May you be the one that finds joy where others find sorrow!

On a very cold day like today be happy you are alive no matter what the weather!

Litsa with Love!
