We have just had a rainy spell and I am longing for sunshine. It has been cloudy, overcast and raining every day this week. As I write this I can see a tiny glimmer of sunshine. I know we need rain to grow food and flowers, etc., but I am a sunshine kind of girl. I can move mountains when the sun shines – not so much when it is dreary outside my window.
I try to take a two to three mile walk every morning before I start my work day. It energizes me and gets me in the mood to tackle whatever task is on my desk. It also helps me to sleep soundly at day’s end. With the rain, I have not been able to walk outdoors this week and instead I have to rely on the treadmill, which I find boring and tedious. It will do, but I love to be outside when I walk.
Notwithstanding the rainy weather, the days are getting warmer and the landscapes are full of flowering trees and plants. It is absolutely my time of year!
I am having lots and lots of fun with my grandchildren and doing lots and lots of knitting as well. Here is a sample of some little comfort blankets/loveys I have made this month.
Whatever your hobby, job or lot in life, I do hope that you are enjoying yourself as much as I am!
Quote of the month: You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it – Robin Sharma
I love that quote! The reason I love it is because there have been many times in my life when I have felt that I could not go on. We all have those moments – strife, loss and tragedy do not discriminate – they visit all of us.
So the next time you have one of those unwelcome visitors in your life, please try to remember this quote and draw strength from it. You ARE strong enough to live your life! Just keep telling yourself – make it your mantra and sooner rather than later, you will come to know that you can indeed move on with your life, regardless.
Please remember that everyone has something going on in their lives oat any given moment, so try to be kind to one another as often as you can. You never know when it can be YOU who gives that total stranger the will to keep on going.
Until next time…
