This morning it happened again. Whilst waiting for the kettle to boil, my wearily awakening eyes gazed through the kitchen window, past the (again flooded) garage roof and towards the gathering black clouds on the horizon. "Looks like we're in for yet another soaking" I groaned. But wait, the wonderful rays of sunshine then courageously burst forth across the sky, highlighting the edge of a cloud and showing me true, amazing beauty - a beauty that I may otherwise have overlooked and simply returned to my boiling kettle. So in my pajamas, I grabbed my camera....
So what's my point, well it sounds a bit old hat to say that every cloud has a silver lining, but every apparently bleak looking situation indeed can have it's good points - sometimes they just need pointing out to us. Just like the ray of sunshine making the smaller, fluffy cloud glow in the sky and reminding me that beauty is everywhere.
Whenever it's a dark, dismal, miserable day, I always console myself with the thought that above the clouds the sun is always shining...even when I left the house this morning, without a coat, drenched through, I knew it wouldn't last forever and the sun would show her face again!
I hope you enjoyed these pictures. As ever, like if you like, comment and share if you dare. x x
