reds, yellows and oranges...and moments of sunshine






the sun is not out...
it is too wet to play...
we are stuck in the house
day after day
after day.
{sorry, dr suess...}

i'm tired and cranky
and stressed out...

trying to mow the lawn
in between bursts of rain,
sick of having to cancel photo sessions
because of the weather...
sick of money and demands
and decisions...

so i think
this week i'm going to focus
on the good things...
taking note of the small things
that make me smile,
taking stock of what really matters.

i'm going to look
for my own sunshine moments.
{and if i can't find them,
i'm gonna make them.}

:O)

It's been wet and icky here all week too... it doesn't really feel like summer and maybe I'm ok with that.

Me too. Focusing on the the good stuff is the only choice possible. Hope the sun comes out soon...
