Seeing past the rain

It's been a long time since I was at Penn State, but I used to love going downtown and browse the stores with a friend of mine. We had no money, but we would just go around to the different stores to look and think of all the things we'd love to buy if we could. I was fond of books and journals. I'd always pick them up. One day I found this book of poetry. I can no longer remember the name of the author; I'm sure if I looked hard enough I'd find that book somewhere in my apartment, but one of the poems came to mind today -

I've often wondered
and racked my brain.
But, I guess I'll just never know -
Why one person looks
and sees the rain,
while the other is seeing the rainbow!
I've often had people tell me that I always see the positive in everything, but I see myself as a negative person. I'm not sure what that means. I want to be the positive person - the person that sees the rainbow, rather than the rain. Lately, I've been seeing a lot of rain - I guess I should work on that!

bear with me

I'm going to start this blog for no other reason but a place to lay out those things which are on my mind today. Who knows if anyone will read it or find interest with it, but it will be good for me! I think it's going to take me some time to figure out how and what I'm going to post here.

It's a beautiful day outside today. I love the fall - the colors, the smells, the decorations. It's my favorite time of year.

I wish we would have had a day like this yesterday. We are putting a new building up at the farm and we had some help yesterday and it was a cold, gray, breezy day. We got some work done, but there is a lot to accomplish yet.

Daddy is doing well. He doesn't go back to the Dr. until mid November - I know it's just as hard for him to not be doing anything, as it is for us doing all the stuff he normally does. Hopefully, they will tell him next time that he can start bearing weight.
