Spring rains may bring flowers, but they also produce flooding, followed by moldy conditions, increased pollen counts and seasonal allergies and colds. Sump pumps fail, as thunderstorms rage and we improvise, moving furniture and storages cartons, and bailing water between sniffles and sneezes. Quick action gets a replacement pump installed and adverts a major soaking.
The storm passes and the sun shines on a disheveled home. The sunlight seems brighter, the sky bluer. Rooting through boxes reveals cherished memories pulled from the fringes of forgetfulness. We laugh as we remind each other of the good old days and our shared experiences. Exhausted from the day’s activities, we finally fall into a good night’s sleep.
What will you celebrate today?
Keep on writing.
