Chapter 6, Page 20, Book 19

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.

John Muir

June 20 - almost summer

Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better.

Albert Einstein

Today is the last day of Spring and tomorrow it will be summer.  So far we here in Northern Ohio have had lots of rain…all Spring…April showers began and forgot to stop.

Nature surely had us in mind when it comes to learning lessons We’ve learned to persevere and not give up hope.  We’ve learned that nothing is ever the same.  This has not been our typical Spring.  

I’ve learned, as have many others,  that we cannot fight mother nature, so we might as well try to go with flow.  Making our own sunshine when it’s needed.  Life goes on so we might as well go with the flow. Learn from the lessons and move on.  Remembering that no matter what storms are passing, beyond the clouds, the sky is always blue and the sun is always shining.

Adopt the pace of nature; her secret is patience.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life’s wisdom can often miss us because life moves so fast, that we have to practice standing still.

I like that quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson. I think you guys back east are learning patience as you wait for less rain and more sun.

"Making our own sunshine when it’s needed." Lady when you wrote that you said a lot in a few words. That was my Gem for today. I seem to always find one here.

.. and I thought Alabama was abnormally wet. If anyone can make their own sunshine, my money's on YOU!
