Rainy days

Into every life, a little rain must fall. Some experience a downpour, but rest assured: the sun will come out eventually. Until that time, one must be careful not to crash due to the slippery conditions.

Anger comes easy, and you should be wary of giving in to something that shows up so readily and makes itself at home. The one that suffers only knows they are suffering. But be careful of erupting, for the innocent may be caught in the flow.

If you must vent, it is best to do so in private. That way, no one else gets hurt. The anger dissipates into the air, and you feel better.

A good listener is a blessing beyond measure. Take heed not to abuse them. Speak of your problem, but do not make it theirs.

And be prepared to return the favor. After all, you know what it is like to hurt. Other people are hurting too.

Joy is fleeting, so make it count. Savor each moment, and be sure to pass it on.  The sun will come out and dry up all the rain. And with a smile on your face, you can face the world again.


  1. I'd like to have you etch a one sentence blurb to open my true crime novel, The Good Friday Killers.

    1. Sure, RJ! Thanks for the opportunity...

    2. It's pouring me right now! I'm trying not to drown. Your wisdom gives me hopeful comfort.

    3. As long as we live, there will be pain. But there will also be moments of joy. We must savor them...
