Yep, here it comes again, raindrops keep falling on my head and the fields are back to a boggy, muddy mess again. I am hiding inside and trying to keep the mules' spirits up. We had a glimpse of Spring and a taste of green, green grass in our spring paddock only to have it snatched away again. There is no way we're venturing out in this weather, I may be able to cope but those mules are fairweather folks.
Ever wondered why just when things are going great, the sun is shining, you're looking forward to new horizons and good times ahead and then BAM! Someone puts a bump in the road, a curve in the straight, a problem where there wasn't one, rain where there should be sunshine? Yep I think about these things all the time...... I have a lot of philosophising time whilst eating, the perfect combination ;-)
I am ever the optimist though, the sun will arrive again, the mountains will be climbed and Summer is just around the corner.
So here's the thought for today, thanks to a friend who knew just the right thing to say to brighten my day!
Don't confuse your path with your destination. Just because it's stormy now doesn't mean that you aren't headed for sunshine!
