You Are My Sunshine

I grumbled as I struggled with the wet gate. The rain had just stopped and everything was sopping wet.  More rain, seriously? This is excessive even for the Northwest! And then thoughts of her came to me as I pushed past the daisy's at the gate. When I was a child my mother would sing to me - You are my sunshine, my only sunshine - on rainy days when we both thought it should be sunny.  I paused thinking it was so odd to think of that song but then I became aware of the beauty of the rain drops on all these sunny little faces.

Thank you Mom for reminding me to stop, look and listen
to the rhythms of the earth.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear, how much I love you...

The sunshine may come and go, but it is
good to know you will always be with me.
