Sunshine and rain.

This plinky prompt asked, “Ten years ago, did you expect that your life would be anything like it is today?” My answer would have to be absolutely absolutely no way.
I couldn’t have predicted all of the good things going on in my life right now, all of the friends I’m connecting with, the two children I did not have a decade ago. Unfortunately I could not have predicted the friends who are no longer with us, those who have moved away and the challenges I’ve faced as a wife, as a mother, as a person. I couldn’t have predicted 9/11, Katrina, or the Oil Spill, either. From where I stand right now, though, it’s like all of the rain we get in my part of the country. It can be annoying at times, but it makes the sunny days that much more precious and wonderful. I think.

  1. I like your reflection because it gives me pause to stop and think about the good things I have going on right now…despite the high gas prices. Although, my life is not what I pictured it to be, I am thankful for the great people I have in my life.
