Day three . . . will the rain EVER stop?

My mood was falling like the steady drops of rain

So I stepped outside.

I looked up at the clouds

Intending to share

a piece of my mind!


The cooling, cleansing drops had their way

And I laughed

Then pounced in the nearest puddle!

I was young again!

Tears of Joy

May 6, 2017

I sit at the water’s edge

hearing the music of the droplets

tumbling over the rocks at the shore . . .

sounds of strength and hope.

my other office

A lack luster morning

Holding me back

From being all I can be

And doing all I can do

Instantly made better by throwing open the drapes

And letting in the Son!

Rain drops gently fall

It is neither late nor light

Their music feeds me

ATTITUDE- Your Choice!

There were plenty of dark clouds,

but I was distracted by the stars!

In my experience, my waking thoughts can stick with me all day, so some days I need to refocus them.  Not today because, as often happens, I awaken singing this amazing song which has set me on a great path!  My late mother, with all her many health issues, always awakened in song and it pleases me to say I inherited this tendency from her!

Miracle Cure For a Bad ATTITUDE

When you paste a smile on your face just so folks may not catch on to how sad/mad/bad you really feel, it seems to eventually mess you up*, because without realizing when it happened, the seemingly impossible actually does. You will become genuinely happy. – From Martha L Shaw Thoughts Over Morning Coffee
