31 Days of Gratitude: Balance


If you insist that it never rain on your parade,
Then you'll never know 
the breathtaking beauty of the rainbow.

Having been through drought, I have a different rapport with rain lately. Where once we'd groan to have rain "interrupt" our plans, now we dance jubilantly when it arrives. 
I think we'd throw a parade for the rain!

Isn't it funny how perspective can shift like that?
Contrast heightens awareness,
Bringing new appreciation
And respect for 
balance, 
                       the ebb and flow, 
                                      the yin and yang
                                    of life.

....

I am grateful for rain and sunshine, wind and stillness, cold and heat...for all the wondrous processes that make life possible on our little bubble in space.

In hindsight I often see how challenges, like rain, can provide a sort of nourishment for growth.

I am grateful for the dynamic balancing forces of life.
