It's getting lighter YAY

January is cold. and snowy. There is something I like about January, though.
 It gets light out earlier, and stays light a little longer. This makes it feel as if spring is almost, almost, maybe still coming. Yes, I know, warmer temperatures won't be here for another five or six weeks, but that extra bit of daylight brings hope to an almost frozen body!
  This morning, as I got up to prepare lunches and breakfasts for four hungry young men (I have my little neighbour here for 10 days) the sun rising was so beautiful. God had frosted each tiny branch with a coat of fur, which sparkled and glittered in the pink, purple, and yellow light.
