“Rain all you want on my old house, as the roof is new”
It’s raining today on my old house, and I’m fine with it. I have a new roof, and the rain finds a place away from me and runs off like a snow melted stream in the Rockies. I believe rain gets us all thinking. At the place in life we all are, we have all been rained on a few times in one way or another.
I have been through many changes in my personal life over the past couple of years Much like the rain, changes happened, and quite frankly, as many don’t embrace change, I am much better for it. My health is very good, and my professional life is better than ever. But the void that change can leave in ones personal existence sometimes is the toughest hurdle to clear. Even with that said, I knew then, and know even more now, that all will be fine, and in fact better than before. Maybe even better than I could have imagined before it clouded up.
But no matter what direction the rain came from, I was ready, and I am ready still. I don’t want to be the one that scoffs at the rain, or runs from it. Sure, storms can be challenging but they do end, and skies do clear to brilliant blue. And when they do we can either look at it two ways, One, is that everything is soaked and ruined. Or that the rain was needed and much will grow strong and tall from it.
I choose the latter.
