Thoughts to Paws over…

“I can’t stand the rain, against my window…”  I had this lyric going through my head this morning as I reluctantly opened the blind.  I know, ‘April Showers bring May flowers’! Some days it is really hard to celebrate the seasons and remind oneself that with all the wet, things blossom and grow!  As the boys and I headed out for our walk, the drops went from a drizzle into a down pour.  Within seconds I had little lakes in my runners…yes, silly me, I couldn’t find where I safely stowed my rubber boots so I wore my old running shoes!  My leggings were splattered in mud and neither one of the dogs looked at all impressed with the fact that they were drenched!   As we traversed through the puddles I was looking around and remarking to anyone who might be listening, “look at that majestic Magnolia!”  “Wow, those Daffodils are so vibrant and yellow!”   I listened to the birds chirping and watched a Robin looking for breakfast.   My hands were as cold as ice, my legs were soaked from the thigh down and I was shivering from being cold, despite all this I was challenging myself not to allow the elements to dampen my spirits!   On the cold rainy days, when the temperatures are barely hovering above zero, walking the dog is sometimes the furthest thing from the scope of my imagination of fun ways to spend an hour.   While I was out there I was able to see the magnificence of Spring!   Now that I am back inside and drinking a warm beverage and in dry clothes it seems like a perfectly rational concept to hunker down and not leave the comforts of home!  I will keep the blinds open, rain, rain, you don’t need to go away! I shall prepare myself for another few walks and and change the tune in my head to ‘the Sun will come out, tomorrow…”   If you see some soggy woman, singing in the rain, that would be me!

“The sun will come out tomorrow
Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow
There’ll be sun

Just thinkin’ about tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow
’til there’s none

When I’m stuck with a day that’s grey and lonely
I just stick up my chin and grin and say, oh

The sun will come out tomorrow
So you gotta hang on
’til tomorrow, come what may!
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow
You’re always a day away!

When I’m stuck with a day that’s grey and lonely
I just stick up my chin and grin and say oh

The sun will come out tomorrow
So you got to hang on ’til tomorrow, come what may!
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you tomorrow
You’re always a day away”
