Weather is a great metaphor for life – sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad,
and there’s nothing much you can do about it but carry an umbrella.
~Terri Guillemets

Thank you for all the well wishes.  Today was sunny and both of the twins went to preschool.   This time of year the birthdays, anniversaries and yahrzeits for Jake and Sawyer are over.  The “pressure to be happy because it the holidays” is over too.   The dark days are a little less dark.

It helps that the sun has been shining and this winter has not been too cold.  There has been a lot of rain and sometimes there are storms.  It is all part of life.  I wish some of the storms were not quite so severe but no one asked me.

When it does rain the twins usually belt out a few verses of “rain, rain go away.”  This brings a smile to my face.  If that does not do the trick then I can always fall back on the song Blame it on the rain by Milli Vanilli.  “You can blame it on the rain. . .You got to blame it on something” is then stuck in my head for the rest of the day.  So, even on the dark rainy days there is some light.

  1. Always wishing you lots of light. Xo

  2. ditto to what kelcey said!

  3. Here’s to brighter days. And tell the twins they can send the rain my way…everyday. :).

  4. Blame it on Elaine, yah yah….just kidding friend, but you’re the reason that song always brings a smile to my face. Happy sunshine and bright days.

  5. I always think of my wonderful college friends when I hear that song! Thanks for being my friend.

  6. Enjoy the sunshine–but some rain now and then is important to keep us all remembering how much we love the sunshine. (Both literally and metaphorically.)

  7. Hoping you had lots of light sent straight from your boys.
