Storms



 
The weather finally changed here…at least for a day or two.
We have had a very mild fall.  Lots of 70s and near 80s and plenty of sunshine.

Earlier this week, I watched the storm clouds hover over the mountains.  I knew that eventually they would come down.
Reminds me of months ago, seeing the storm clouds.

Sometimes the winds shift and the clouds don’t come down.
Hope is that feeling that the winds will shift.  Or that the storm will pass through, and everything will be fine.

But the clouds did come down.
The reality of life two months ago is that the winds didn’t shift.  And the storm was worse than it appeared in the distance.

There is one thing about this storm.
There’s no going back to the darkest days.

Those are behind us.
Now we are left with moments.  Some moments feel like the sun is shining through.  Others feel like the worst part of the storm.

I know that one day, those moments with the sun on our face will last longer than the others.
