AFTER THE HOLIDAY
It hits me right after New Years, every single year. I drive home from work. The days are so short that it is still dark. As I pull into my subdivision, it is dark. All the Christmas lights are off. The cheery lights are gone. The drive is bleak and I am sad.
I know. It is common to feel depression during winter months. Even though the days are getting longer, it doesn't seem to be enough.
The Christmas lights amuse me, but now the are gone. Like all humans, I long for light.
I am thankful the days are getting longer.
