This entry is part 5 in the series Giving Thanks Daily

I’m certain it’s safe to say that autumn is here and winter is on its way (yes, I said winter). It’s been considerably colder the past few days, which makes me want to snuggle in and stay put until the warmer temperatures come back.

In other words, I’d like to hibernate.

If I did choose to hibernate, I’d be missing out on a lot of my favourite things about the colder days of autumn and winter! Frosty mornings, the spectacular sunrises, crockpot meals and warm blankets are some of my favourite things. Let’s not forget Thanksgiving is this week, and Christmas isn’t far behind. It’s those kinds of things that make the long, dark days of winter a little more bearable!

What are some of your cold weather favourites? What makes those cold days worth it?

Will you join me in this challenge to give thanks daily? It’s not too late to join in! This past week, it was so good to make the choice to be thankful. It brought a lot of joy to what would have been a more difficult week.
