Winter blues

Yeah, yeah, yeah . . . I realize that my blog appears to have been completely abandoned and that posting at this point may seem a little silly, but I've got a laugh to share. And since I really did start this blog to document things that I don't want to forget, it really doesn't matter that nobody but me is reading it anymore. :-) This is one that I don't want to forget.

Yesterday I walked over to the school to pick Noah up from kindergarten. It was the second of two sunny days in a row, and the temperature was actually quite pleasant for a change, although I could already feel a chill from the wind that was beginning to pick up. We are so tired of being locked up inside, and although the weatherman had warned me that another storm was on the way, I was enjoying the short reprieve from my coat and gloves. As we were walking home I commented on the bright yellow construction paper sunshine that Noah was carrying and asked him to tell me about it.
This is how the conversation went:

Noah: It's a sun because I want it to be sunny and warm.
Me: Yeah, I want it to be sunny and warm too.
Noah: I don't get it. It's supposed to be warm now but it's already starting to get cold again.
Me: I know, but it will be spring soon and then it will be warm.
Noah: But it's taking forever, and then it kind of gets warm and then it gets cold again and it's freezing me, but the sun is trying to make it warm, but the wind is making it cold again. I just don't get it. What is Jesus thinking anyway??!?
