Gloomy no more...

*I read this quote that prarie chick wrote on her site and it totally fits my state of mind. Thank you praire chick for saying what I couldn't.*
One day you wake up and the forecast is gloomy,
for the weather and for your attitude alike.
One of those days steeped in the quagmire of melancholy
Wherever you look things are downright messy

and all you can do is pray helplessly for reprieve.

But just when you think you’re about to go down

God sends a helping hand

a listening ear… a shoulder to cry on

and all at once the sun emerges

and the flowers that had closed up tight

waiting for a softer light

open wide and smile at you.

and you smile too.
I finished my chores early today. My kids are were napping. My spirits are lifted after a rough couple of weeks. I promise to be back in bloggy land next week. Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts and prayers.

Welcome back friend, I have missed you! What a beautiful poem. Hope we can all have a water day together soon :) The girls looked like they were having so much fun!

I am SO GLAD that you are better... even if it is only a little... We love you and think of you often!

I love the title you picked and I love that the words spoke to you where you were. I smiled just knowing that someone else had shed the gloom for sunshine and smiles. I am just returning from an extended week at the lake and am feeling renewed in every way, I pray the same is true for you!
