Winter Wonderland

 January 13, 2020

Growing up in Michigan, I remember the slogan “Winter Wonderland” depicting Michigan’s winter beauty. We’ve long since given up that slogan for other slogans, but the term remains engrained in my psyche. It is a way to get through drab, dreary cold winter days by focusing on the beauty of snow-covered hills and streets and outdoor activities, like skiing, skating, sledding.

We experience “winters” in our marriages, times that are harder than others, times of struggle when you want to give up, throw in the towel and walk away; struggles that feel like they will never end. Research shows that couples who weather through these difficult times and stick together rather than divorce, come out happier on the other side. Sometimes you just have to ride out the storm.

In the midst of a winter storm, if we can find positives to focus on to help us get through, we will come out on the other side, stronger for the experience. We can turn a winter of discontent into a wonderland.
