This Wednesday Word No. 93, courtesy of The Happy Housie, is a reminder that even the seasons can offer hope. It’s officially springtime, but the weather in Los Angeles is having a bit of an identity crisis, as it rained yesterday and will have an encore throughout today. I’m right there with all you sunshine lovers with my old-school chant of “Rain, rain go away, come again another day.” I mean, I thought we were over this. Apparently, February saw as many rainy days as it did sunny ones (and, therefore, enough rain for the rest of the year, if you ask me), which is unheard of for Southern California. But before I get caught up in this trivial gripe, I must acknowledge that there are some great perks that have come from rainfall. Without the rain, there are no blooming wildflowers and succulent succulents and lush green hills that I have recently been pleasantly surprised by. On a deeper level, this quote speaks to the newness that’s sure to come. No matter how dreadful your present day may look, there’s always the promise of a better, brighter tomorrow. After the storm comes sunshine. It just takes a little darkness for you to fully appreciate the light. I hope your perspective shifts when you consider how long you’ve been in a place you’d rather not be. Change will soon come. Believe that!
