Spring Showers

Remember this little joke?

If April showers bring May flowers, then what do Mayflowers bring? …………….

Wait for it………………

Pilgrims!!! 🤣

As I sit in the classroom this morning, I gaze outside and am thankful for the daylight in spite of the cloud-filled, rainy sky. Darkness cannot prevail within the classroom even though the electricity is temporarily off due to effects of the storm. Storm or shine, electricity or not, life must press on. 

If I stop living with each storm that blows my way, I wonder how many opportunities I will miss? Too many. I want to experience all that life has to offer. If I experience it with a wet head, so be it.

Last summer we traveled to Hawaii. Each day presented a new island and a new adventure. The island of Hilo offers unique scenery ranging from the majestic Rainbow Falls to the active volcano on the other side of the island, just a tour bus ride away. We want to see it all. Unfortunately, Hilo is the fourth wettest destination in the United States with rainfall throughout the year. The day of our visit was no exception. With each stop of the bus, visitors have the choice to stay warm and dry as they gaze through the bus windows or brave the weather and get a closer look. We don our hats and jackets, grab our camera, and play in the rain! Who knows? We may never be atop a smoking volcano again! 

Seize the day. Carry on. Get wet. The memories you will create are priceless.

As a former mathematics teacher and pastor's wife, I encounter many people facing difficult problems in everyday life. I desire to inspire others to push on during times of difficulty. I am a mother of two grown children, and what I lack in personal experience, I have gleaned through the experiences of others. My goal is to encourage through my "Priddy" words.
