What a difference a day makes

One day cold. One day warm. One day rain, ice, snow, and thunder. One day, bright sunshine. One day well. One day sick. What a difference a day makes. It has been said many times around here that if you don’t like the weather, stick around for it will change. That statement isn’t unique to one location. The same remark could be heard almost anywhere one roams.

What a difference a day makes… Numerous times in every life this statement rings true. A person can be so down the light of day seems to be hidden away forever behind the dark clouds raining down problem after problem. Seemingly sudden changes happen after a night of favorable rest pushing the clouds back revealing the glowing sun’s rays that fill a life, a heart, and a spirit with hope and joy. Both days must be accepted for what they are. As difficult as it is to do, the heart must find thankfulness for the dark days as well as the brilliant ones. Basking in the sunlight gains an extra appreciation after facing times filled with pressing woes. This is often the time of growth. As much as maturity is needed, a break to rest in those glorious days of sunlight is equally important.

Are you under a cloud? Don’t give up hope. Look for the parting of the clouds. Use an umbrella of family and friends when you must. Are you enjoying the comforting warmth of the sun? Don’t take it for granted. Do enjoy it while preparing for the storm. After all, day can make all the difference!

I have not only lived many chapters in one life, but many lives in one body. The person I am today is far wiser than the me of young adulthood. My life is like your life with its ebb and flow. We are all connected in some way. I am a wife, mother, and grandmother, but what makes me, well, me is the way I wife, mother, and grandmother. I am a liver transplant survivor. Whatever devastation you have survived, we survived in our individual ways. I create with words and photos. I am a writer and photographer.
