Day 448 - Sunshiny Day
Saturday, February 20, 2016
After some low clouds and fog this morning, the sun is now shining brightly, and the grebes are swimming amidst the sparkles on the lake. I'm taking a break from my class preparation to catch up and remind you all that no matter what the weather, you should always be creating your own sunshine.
I love this quote, because it's all about staying positive. Those of you who know me are familiar with my Pollyanna nature. I believe that encouragement and support, along with a hug and a smile, go a lot farther than criticism. Even those that I have to give a little "tough love" to should know that it always comes from a place of love.
I am grateful for rain when it falls, clouds when they appear, and sunshine when it makes the lake sparkle. Every part of this world provides endless fascination and joy. Why not cherish it? If it's cold outside, be grateful for warm blankets and a home that provides comfort. Or go outside and embrace the chill with a brisk walk, watching your breath form little clouds in front of you.
Life is what you make of it. Let the sunshine warm you even if the air is frigid, and let the shadows fall behind you.
This afternoon we're going to Mel and Kurt's place for a hike around their property to enjoy the daffodils in bloom (photos will be coming, I promise), and then dinner together. Steve's former boss Karen is here, and we are enjoying her visit tremendously. Her birthday is tomorrow, and it will be so much fun to celebrate with her.
Enjoy the sunshine today. Remember - even if the sky is full of clouds, the sun is still there, because if it weren't, well
