I need an umbrella.
And a life jacket.
And one of those life preserver rings they throw off boats to people.
Not to protect me from water.
To protect me from the stress & drama falling and flooding my world.
We didn’t ask for it.
Nor did we create it.
We are just holding things afloat.
I know it will recede.
Probably not for another 6 to 12 months.
That is a long time.
We aren’t sure what we will be facing at the end of the storm.
Things could be demolished and gone forever.
Things may come out better than ever before.
We just don’t know.
Only time will tell.
I’m going to hold out hope that there is a rainbow in this storm.
We will find that pot of gold at the end of it.
Life will be grand.
