Chin Up!

Just in case you're having a bad day, I thought I'd share this photo I took a few days ago along with a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

I was sitting in my little home on wheels contemplating the meaning and purpose of my life. It started to grow dark and dreary, inside and out. Gloom, like heavy rain clouds, became my blanket. Storms seemed sure to come. Yet, when I stepped out of my traveling abode, and myself, it was plain to see that beyond the clouds of darkness and despair, the sun was bright and promising. Soon the rain came. The rain, and tears, brought a refreshing fragrance and hope, a cleansing of earth and mind. And when the rain ended, the sun shone brightly again.

May God bless your day, and remember to look above the clouds!

I love this picture. It is what my last two days have been like. Dealing with my high school lazy daughter that I keep having higher expectations for and she just is not preforming at that level has had me a little gloomy. After letting the tears roll and "The Father's Love Letter" I feel much better. That is the sun above those clouds. Thank you for sharing. Cindy

Children are always a challenge. I think they are one of the things God gives us to make us more like Him. Some day when they are parents, they will know about the tears we shed over them--they will be sheding their own tears then. Hang in there sister. In a few years, that daughter will appreciate your wisdom and you'll be friends again.
