It has been raining here for days. Actually it seems like it has been raining for months. I love a rainy day but I am learning that I am not a fan of day after day of rain. But then I saw the above quote which reminded me that although I can't change the weather, I can change how I react to it. I can see this time as a great opportunity to huddle down with a blanket, a book, and a special cup of coffee. I can use this time to create a special place to write or to meditate. On my vision board for this month I have a beautiful picture which says create a quiet sanctuary. I think of my home in this manner but there are little touches I have been adding week by week to really create this atmosphere. A small bunch of flowers on the kitchen table, a lamp instead of overhead lights, and lots and lots of pretty journals to capture thoughts and take notes are just simple things I have done to add to the feeling I want to create in each room.
I remember how I used to love rain when I was little. There was nothing that we loved better than jumping in puddles and seeing how big of a splash we could make. So while I'm not outside splashing in puddles today, I'm inside still enjoying all the wonderful things a rainy day can bring. It is amazing how just by changing our thoughts we can change how we feel. Thank you Roger Miller for giving me the inspiration to do just that today.
Each Thursday I share something that brought me joy during the week. This week I received numerous Facetime calls from my young grandsons. Each call brought with it three smiling faces. It was a perfect way to end the day and to capture special moments filled with joy. What brought you a special moment of joy this week?
