I am in a good place

Good morning ... you know yesterday I chatted about rain and more rain and today guess what it is doing, yup, raining. And I am okay with the rain. There is a song out there and I believe the chorus has something like "stand a little rain" .. it's on the tip of my tongue, just dancing around on the edge of the brain cell that can't quite reach it, but it will come to me at some point today. Anyway, the reason for my going on and on about the rain is ... I think I have been in the rainy season, you know, the one where a little gray cloud follows you around, you move left, it moves left, you move right, it moves right. You just want to sing song "rain rain go away .... " ahhh here it comes ... "everybody wants love to be easy, but it's never been that way, each love starts out with blue skies, sometimes those blue skies turn gray, when the storm blows over, only the strong love remains, if we're ever gonna see a rainbow, we've got to stand a little raaaaiinnnn." So there is so much in those lines about friendship, life, love ... and believe me when I say, I know my friends have been through some rain with me. I know.

I was in a meeting last night, looking around at the positive energy and just thinking, I am in a good place now. I can stand the rain, I have stood the rain. I am so very thankful for the loves I have in my life. And thankful that they stood in the rain with me over these past few years. Those are the perennials of my life, no matter how cold it gets outside, how much frost and rain and lack of attention at times, they are always there, just under the surface, popping up and shining, reminding me, always reminding me just how beautiful my life is with them in it, my rainbows! Ah, the loves of my life, thank you. I am in a good place.
