The snow is cold and unforgiving but falling down in it face first in it after a bender all night can be a wake-up call. Sometimes it takes a tumble down the staircase to make us realize there are steps. Life can be a slap in the face, a punch in the stomach, a kick in the shins, but we keep putting one foot in front of the other and keep going. Unfortunately, it’s not always a walk in the park, an ice cream on a hot evening, or a cup of hot cocoa on a frosty night. It can be a dog chasing us, ice cream dropped on the sidewalk, or burning the roof of our mouth. It’s all about yin and yang and rolling with the punches.
