There has been some pretty nasty weather tear through my part of the country this past week. A tornado ripped through my best friend’s backyard (luckily her family and their house are perfectly fine!), there have been flash floods, and some people very seriously injured the past couple of days.
And then the clouds parted today…there was sunshine and birds singing. There is laughter from children playing in their driveways and even the sound of hammers and nails as construction on new houses in an adjacent neighborhood continues.
The stormy weather helps us appreciate the good days. Much like life, right? We don’t appreciate all of the amazing things right in front of us until they’re gone.
Take the opportunity today to show gratitude for the things in your life that bring out the sunshine in yourself.
Have a great weekend everybody!
