Driving my son to wrestling practice early this morning, there were so few cars on the road, I had a chance to take a good look around while I drove. It was sunny and freezing and windy, and leaves were lining the road in deep drifts. For the first time, I really noticed how many of the trees were completely bare. Suddenly I was struck by how depressing our landscape would look if all our trees and shrubs were deciduous.
I'm thankful for evergreen trees and bushes, which continue to add color to a season that would be very dreary without it.
What are you thankful for today?
