Storm clouds and sunshine.
I know that a loving Heavenly Father allows rain to fall in our lives at times because of the growth that it produces. STORM CLOUDS are a function of love not fear and I have the opportunity, if I choose to let this trial nurture the garden of my soul. It is difficult not to focus on the negative parts of the STORM CLOUD, but I know that when I see the clouds for what they are (antecedents to growth), I will draw myself closer to Heavenly Father and the person HE KNOWS I CAN BE!
'Mom's Heart' Moment: On Sunday we celebrated my nephew's birthdays and it had been the first time that my four year old niece had seen me without my hair. It was a really difficult moment when I saw the fear in her eyes when she looked at me and asked my brother what had happened to my hair. My brother Bart giggled and told her that it was just fine--it was a sign that I was getting better!
