A Day in the Life

I took a photo of a storm drain and had it framed for my love. I wrote a letter telling him how proud I was to weather many storms with him. There have been many, and we have been dangerously close to drowning at least once.

He bought me flowers that reminded him of our wedding flowers, and a card. On the card there was an illustration of two lovers holding hands beneath an umbrella. The opening line read, It's so nice to know we're in this thing together...come rain or shine... "Hey", I said, "You were thinking about the storms too?" "Yep", he replied.

I fondly remember new, sweet and perfect love...but I will forever rejoice in this weathered and perfectly imperfect love-filled life.


Now, let's eat!

Peace and love

It's so awful that I've reduced my commenting to Facebook chatter. You'll forgive me one day.

Though they come and go, storms don't last. And usually --- almost always actually --- afterwards, there's something new, refreshing or a sense of clarity in the air.

Beautiful. You know I read "happiness is a choice" often and a few weeks ago I read "love is a choice". It is all sooooo true. In fact, whatever is the opposite of what my stress happens to be, at any given moment, is my choice.
