“A single gentle rain makes the grass many shades greener. So our prospects brighten on the influx of better thoughts. We should be blessed if we lived in the present always, and took advantage of every accident that befell us.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
By accident, fate, or by design – life took some interesting twists and turns in the last few weeks. Some sad, some scary. But one thing I’ve learned: life just happens. When the storms come – you can let them drown you in sorrow and doubt, or you can learn to dance in the rain.
Dancing in the rain is what the garden did this weekend –
and the dogs. Nope. These are not Golden Retrievers. But that is another story.
I think the garden was a bit more appreciative of the puddles than Roger.
I know that many who read this blog are praying for an end to rain or snow, but we delight in the grey and gloom knowing that an endless stream of blue skies and hot, thirsty days await.
“Instead of complaining that the rosebush is full of thorns, be happy that the thorn bush has roses.” ~ Proverb
I’m grateful for the rain, just as I am grateful for the sunshine that brings warmth, and flowers, and light to life.
No point in wishing for one or the other. All we can do is live in the present, take advantage of each accident that befalls us, and dance in the rain.
