Something as normal, yet amazing, happened today.
After a torrential rain and heavy winds, the sky opened up and revealed the sun.
Let the sun shine!
I wonder how many songs have been written about the sun.
You are the sunshine of my life.
Don’t let the sun go down on me.
Have you ever seen the rain coming down on a sunny day?
Sunshine on my shoulder…
Good day sunshine.
House of the rising sun…
Ain’t no sunshine when you’re gone.
For whatever reason, I feel better when it is a sunny day.
Well, except for the blistering, brutal sun glare in the mornings and evening, driving to and from work.
Or when the sun pairs up with the humidity, and wreaks havoc on those who don’t have a pool.
However, there is something especially gratifying when the rain stops and the sun puts on its glorious cloak, to produce a fleeting moment of color, better known as a rainbow.
I guess life is like that.
We have moments of fleeting beauty and happiness.
Even when we embrace those moments, in a matter of time, everything comes to an end.
Lesson to be learned?
Life is beautiful, even in the storm.
We are so busy, we people of this nation, working, to provide for our families, that we miss those fabulous moments that nature has to offer.
Take a few moments tomorrow, as you are traveling to your workplace, to look around you, at the beauty of autumn.
Soak it in.
And carry it with you, all day.
What a fabulous life we have on this planet.
I hope you are enjoying it.
I must admit, that some days, I am preoccupied and I miss out on the splendor of our world.
Shame on me.
Life is all about living in the moment.
Why can this be such a difficult thing to do?
I guess it is that we get wrapped up in stuff that weighs us down.
A partly cloudy sky, with gigantic clouds, floating over a sea of yellow, red and gold trees.
Let’s let go, and just enjoy it!
