Wonderful Wednesday Gratitude

“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.” ~Thomas Merton

The morning started out with bright sunshine and has now clouded over to a cold rain. Today I find myself reflecting on life in much the same way. We all start out bright and cheerful but we each face times when the clouds roll in and we find ourselves amid life’s storms. With each storm we go through though, we become stronger, less fearful, and experience teaches us that good things always follow. Like the green grass and beautiful flowers that follow a spring rain, we can each look forward to unexpected blessings from each life challenge. So, the next time one of life’s storms pops up, know there will be good to follow and maybe – just maybe – you’ll see the rainbow!
