From Rain Forest to Rainbows

This entire week we have had about five total hours of sunlight.
It has rained and rained and rained some more.
We have lived in our own version of a rain forest and I'm not going to lie, it's been gloomy.

So you can only imagine our excitement today, when rocking on the front porch, we see this!

There is light at the end of the rainy tunnel!

The girls were able to have a few minutes of sunshine on Wednesday to pick me some "wishing flowers."

And the baby tree in our front yard was able to get enough rays of sunshine to finally start blooming!

Several gloomy days in a row followed by sunshine and rainbows never fails to remind me that, no matter how dark and depressing stormy days can feel, it's worth fighting through it and keeping your spirits high, because inevitably the dark clouds will pass and the sun will again shine creating something so beautiful that it takes your breath away.

Life is beautiful and God is good.
