Although I love the Carpenters, I have always thought that song was very negative. Here we are...on a rainy Monday...but why do we have to be down? Those of you who know us well know that we are big on "re-framing" the way you look at things. There is always a silver lining to every cloud, let's make lemonade out of lemons, etc. In this case, we in the Atlanta area should welcome the rain. It washes away some of the springtime pollen that makes so many people uncomfortable. It also helps the plants green up, the flowers grow, and the earth get ready for a long, hot summer. It might seem a little dreary when you look out the window, but just be grateful that we have free water today! Think how low your water bill will be! :-)
Take a few minutes to just sit in silence and listen to the rain falling. It is so peaceful. You can almost hear the grass growing! If you are feeling adventurous, put on your rain boots and go for a short walk. Don't forget to splash around in a puddle! It's fun!!!
See you soon! We love and appreciate you!!!
