Out of Season
My wife and I went shopping today for a couple of Adirondack chairs. We are moving into our “new to us home” next week but won’t have our furniture until the first of the year. So, we decided to buy some nice outdoor chairs and use them until our indoor stuff arrives. The problem is that no one’s selling outside furniture this time year. The first day of winter is tomorrow and spring seems so very far away.
As we were shopping today I had the same sense I’ve had since this holiday season began. Everyone around me seems to be in one season and I’m in another. This has been a year full of change, adjustment, shock and acceptance. I told Beth, before we went shopping today, that this was one year I won’t mind ending. Since the first of the year I feel like the world’s moving faster than me and I’m playing catch up. <Sigh>
It’s hard to be in one season while others are in another but trying to force a change is like trying to make spring come quicker. The seasons get here when they get here and until then you sit, wait and believe they’re on their way.
