Jumping in Puddles

I now get why Hallmark is in business. Had one of those days where everything seemed to go wrong from the second I woke up. I get home and have the most fantastic card in the mail from my Mom. On the front is a very stylish girl holding her heels, standing in a puddle. It says, “She’s the kind of person who looks at a cloud and says to herself, ‘There’s a rainbow coming in just a little while.’ Then she kicks off her shoes and dances in the puddles until the sun comes out again.”   I cannot tell you how much I needed that card today!! I needed that reminder that I do love to dance in the rain. When you are waiting for everything to come together in your life, and your leaving it in God’s hands, sometimes it gets a little nerve wracking. Don’t get me wrong, I am adamantly working hard to get where I think I want to go…. think being the key word. But there is a big piece of this puzzle that I have decided to leave in God’s hands and let Him guide my life in the direction He wants it to go. Having said that, I am also constantly reminded that money doesn’t grow on trees in my backyard. Oh…. wait…. I don’t have a backyard anymore!!! But man it feels good to let it go again and just…… DANCE! And that helps me re-gain my focus. I lose focus for too long and things stop working around here.

So on a day I was a little overwhelmed, a little discouraged, a little frustrated, a little worried, a little ctazy, a little mad, and even a little sad – I’m kicking off my shoes and I’m going to dance in the puddles!! (And tonight is the perfect night – we’ve had the most wonderful thunderstorms in Atlanta) I know there is a rainbow coming in just a little awhile. And if nothing else, I at least got a glimpse of it last week. Won’t you come dance with me?????
