A Little Piece of Happy on A Rainy Day

My sister left yesterday morning and she took with her the sun. It turned cold, and dark, and I started to feel gloomy even on the inside so I went for a walk. In the rain. While I was walking my hood, with my hoodie up I saw this beauty staring up at me and although it was in someone else's yard, I ran right up to it and got my close up. Hey, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do to get a close up nature photo every now and then. I so wish that I had a fancy pants camera on me at the time, but my handy dandy Iphone took this and I think it really turned out nice. What do you think?

This flower reminds me of the amazing, creative, God that I serve and it makes me happy on the inside.
It was like God knew I needed a little piece of happy on a rainy day. And maybe that's you today. Maybe you need a little piece of happy on a rainy day. 
Maybe you need that piece of happy on a sunny day.

So I hope it does the same for you. 
And now I leave you with some wise words from a wise woman;

“I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”  Maya Angelou

Sigh...I want to be just like Maya when I grow up.

Tangled Christmas tree lights. Lol! I actually volunteer every Christmas to do the lights because everyone else gets so frustrated and loses their temper.

The lost luggage would freak me out, I confess. But the rain... oh, please bring it on. I'm fearing another drought is on it's way, so I'm enjoying our flowers while we still have them. (And in the process stopping Abby from 'making friends' with that one wasp I keep seeing in our backyard).

Maya Angelou is seriously awesome - so wise. A pretty good person to aspire to be.
