Silver Lining

Even the darkest days have a bright spot somewhere.  It rained off and on (mostly on) all day yesterday, postponing the much-needed mowing again.  Coming back up from the barn in the evening, I caught this sight of clouds limned with gold from the setting sun.  Standing in the drizzle, I could appreciate that the sun was shining somewhere.  My personal bright spot was taking advantage of the rainy day to catch my breath, watch old movies, snack on goodies sent by a friend, and do nothing.  A milk customer who normally has her two little girls in tow came while they were staying with daddy.  She stayed to talk, something we don't always have an opportunity to do.  They are a young couple, renting acreage and raising livestock and a big garden there while he clears trees and fields on their own nearby property, preparing to build a house, and they're just getting to the planning stage for that.  It is such an exciting time in their lives.  Her brief visit was another shining moment in my day.
