I Love Where I Live!

I love where I live!

The weather here is so inconsistent.  People always say, "If you don't like our weather, wait a minute, it'll change.  Sometimes in spring or fall you can experience sunshine, rain, sleet and snow in a matter of a couple of hours.

I'm a "go with the flow" kind of person most of the time with most things.  If it's sunny, cloudy, rainy, windy or snowy, it just doesn't matter to me.  It is what it is.  I simply work around it.  I LOVE the little surprises the weather gives to us.  Many people I know need the sun.  The get SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) if they don't see the sunshine for a few days.  I feel bad for them living here because we can go days and even weeks sometimes without sun.

The other day was an odd kind of day.  The sky was a sheet of gray.  It wasn't individual clouds, it was a solid sheet of gray.  It was snowing, so when I left work I had to brush the snow off of my car.  While I was doing that - and while it was still snowing - the sun appeared.  It wasn't "shining", it was covered with a film from that solid gray sky.  But it was there.  It was like a reminder that even when we can't see it, it's always there.

That made me think of other things that are always there even if we can't see them.  You can't see love. You can't see support.  You can't see gratitude.  You can't see caring.  And you can't see God (or whatever you call your Source).  BUT you can find strength knowing that they're ALWAYS there for you.
 That reminder from the sun put a smile on my face.

I love where I live!

Love,  Paula
