When it rains, it pours.
Usually this is associated with negative outcomes. It rains pain. It rains suffering. It rains something other than sweet cool nourishing life force.
It has been raining in my head lately. I am over-stimulated and overwhelmed with life. Too many things are coming up, and while I know we don't usually get more than we can handle today I feel like, "Hey God, please don't trust me so much . . ."
My parents are needing more and more care and companionship. Trying to handle it from California, New York and Arizona is too much for us now. We have to make big decisions. WOW. Now I know I am grown up. I am making decisions about my parents future. RAIN, RAIN, Go away. Come on back another day.
At least today I have an umbrella of support in my life, people who love me even when I cannot love myself. Some very good friends came to visit me tonight. We laughed about men. We laughed about love. We laughed through our pain and cried from our laughter. We rained joy.
Tomorrow, my plan is to get up and do it over again. With the love and friendships I have in my life today, I know I can weather any storm.
May you stay warm and dry tonight.
