Everybody wants happiness, no one wants pain, but you can’t have a rainbow without a little rain *
Another bright sunny day, can’t wait to get outside into the fresh air and sunshine. Having errands to run yesterday, I was out for half the day driving from one place to another, car window down, the air still a bit of chill to it, but I wanted the wind in my hair and that feeling of being on the move. Not convertible time yet, but the motorcycle enthusiast are out. Just the day before everyone was moaning about the rain. Certainly for those having to deal with the challenges that come with a lot of rain and melting from the heavy snows we’ve had over the winter, it wasn’t all hearts and flowers. But to many of us, the rain meant a day without sunshine, it was wet and sometimes inconvenient. Ever noticed that when it rains, the greetings aren’t so friendly, and some are even grumpy.
Have you ever danced in the rain? Have you ever been caught in a summer shower? When I was younger, walking to work with my hair all done, my clothes all fresh and ready for a work day, caught without an umbrella didn’t make me cheerful. LOL.. I don’t think, I know I grumbled and mumbled words that would have earned me a proper scolding by my parents. Older and wiser now, I am more accepting of the rain, I know it is going to rain, and there is nothing I can do about it, I can either stay inside, or go out and enjoy the world and what the day has to offer. I no longer concern myself about my hair, and if I know it is raining I dress accordingly, if I didn’t expect the rain, so what, I’ll dry. Rain has been a part of this world long before I arrived, and it will continue to fall long after I’ve moved on.
I know that I have many of you who share these moments with me ,write, doesn’t this picture evoke some kind of response from you. Wow! The photographer (*** below) really captured a moment here. That dear reader is what life is, we live our lives in segments, it may not seem so at the time, but I can assure you, that each and everyone of you, will come up with a different story line, or thought on what the picture says to them, or the emotion it evokes. Let us all try to live life a day at a time and make the best of each moment whatever the task or challenge, don’t give up, look for the positives in the situation, Life is art ….. and someone, somewhere is living their day in a similar way ….. remember with the rain comes new growth and if you are lucky you will see your own rainbow.
A smile and a huge hug to start your day! Smile.
