And if you live in Denmark, daily life is also dark and pretty wet.
So what gets you through?
Do you sit under a lamp to get the vitamin D from which the Danish skies are depriving you?
Do you go jogging and let the rain hit you on the face (in a supposedly refreshing way!!)?
Do you curl up with a good book and just escape?
All of those are viable options which could help a person get through this everyday life....
but for me, the "cure" is a bit different.
My cure comes on my iPhone in my (almost daily, thank the Lord!) receipt of videos from Jess. I get so excited when my What's App application tells me that a video is waiting for me to download it! I am like a little kid opening a Christmas present!
These are not videos that Jess makes of Corrie doing something spectacular or worthy of being logged in the baby book. Rather, they are videos of her just BEING..... and they ABSOLUTELY MAKE MY DAY! And I play them over and over, just to memorize her movements and her expressions and to imprint them in my mind as I wait to see her and hold her in 32 more days.....
So "Corrie and her momma videos" are what get me through the day.... Today, yesterday, the day before and I am quite certain MANY MORE DAYS in the future....
