Winter times in life bring rest and a quiet sense of completion,
a space for contemplation and closure melded with hope for the springtime to come.
But . . .
Unsettling questions can crowd into this quiet space.
- Have I maintained integrity and honesty in work and relationships?
- Have I contributed to others, and to the common good?
- Have I done what I can do to restore relationships I have injured?
- Have I used my failures, my losses and my griefs to become the person I intended to be?
