Life has been hard for me. I know things can be worse but we all feel this way sometimes.
Work has been overwhelming and I’ve been on the verge of exploding.
I have other things in my life that have been frustrating and find that I have become easily annoyed.
Wednesday was a particular bad day for me. Work was almost as worse as it’s ever been and it was hot and I was all bitchy.
My hubby decided we should go out to eat and so we went and met his mother at Friday’s.
We got on the road and a monster thunderstorm came and I was annoyed that we had to drive in it.
I argued with hubby about his driving. It wasn’t pretty. But we made it safely.
I filled my belly but still the grumpiness still had a hold on me.
Lael wasn’t listening to anything I said and I just wanted a shower and my bed.
We left the restaurant and as we got in the car and pulled off Lael kept yelling at me to look out the window.
I grumbled something and ignored her. She begged me to look and with much hesitation I finally did.
I’m glad I did because the site I saw instantly made me happy.
There are always storms in our lives but if we just ride it out and seek shelter the skies will eventually clear.
And when they do you will see the light.

I'm glad your storm was harsh, but short-lived.

Wonderful metaphor. :)
As far as the weather is concerned, I have always preferred storms and rain over sun.ReplyDelete
This must be why I have so much drama in my life.

This reminds me of one my favorite quotes: "If you want a rainbow, you have to put up with the rain".
Hope you have a great weekend!
What a great ending to a crummy week!! We've all been there and it's not pretty, but those reminders that life is good are so worth the muck :)ReplyDelete
Stopped by from SITS
Just look, mama. :) And the beauty through a child's eyes can indeed be a turning point in any storm. I'm glad you looked. I'm stopping over from the lovely Heather of the EO. Happy Tuesday.ReplyDelete
