Farewell May

I got spoiled. The early, unseasonably warm, spring had me thinking summer came early. Then May arrived and with it more dull days than I’d like to see.

Yes, we need the rain but my mental health needs sunshine and hot days. It occurred to me today that perhaps my physical health needs it to as I’ve been struggling with increased pain in recent weeks.

As we turn the calendar to June tomorrow I’m hoping for a change in the weather trend. The weather forecasters are promising summer-like weather is just around the corner. May it be so.

I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. My achy bones and soul mimic your need for warm sunshine. May has certainly been a month of showers, Thunder rolling across our prairie and on our TV! My eyes and stiff back need the warm dry sun but it will come, just not till July.

    Fingers crossed that our sun returns soon.

    1. I enjoy a good thunder storm now and then. We get them here in the summer and they are usually followed by bright sunshine!

  2. Even though we need the rain (we got a bit yesterday), it still makes me feel a little morose. I guess we should learn to embrace it, watch it, see how it nourishes. But it sure stinks when you are struggling with two packages, closing your car door, and your umbrella blows inside out!

    1. Oh no! That would tend to make morose–among other things!

      Since we moved back to Kamloops I don’t even use an umbrella anymore. The rain here is nothing like the endless rain we got in Seattle!
