The Good and the Bad

So, this is what it is: just a bad day. It could be much, much worse. Tomorrow is a new day.
But, for now, I just want to wallow a tad. And reflect on the good along with the bad...
The bad: a tremendous thunderstorm woke us up with booming and crashing at 3:05 AM.
The good: none of the lightning struck us!
The good: we had a pricey project to protect us from garage and basement flooding with a new
driveway and sidewalk installed late this spring with an underground piping system
to divert the water.
The bad: apparently the rain fell so fast and hard that leaves and grass clippings clogged the
drain and our garage and basement took in water...yuck!
The good: lately my Mom has been stable with her health and a recent eye surgery improved
her vision
The bad: she fell in her bathroom once again last evening
The good: I am so blessed to have someone like this person in my life. She's amazing!
The bad: she is dealing with a very persistent issue and it is causing her a lot of pain and
tears and I don't know how to make it "all better"
The good: The answer is no
The bad: The answer is no
P.S. I'll get back to being Pollyanna real soon!

Reminds me of a song "Mama said there'd be days like this, there'd be days like this my mama said."

Sorry that your day has been less than pleasant. Here's to tomorrow. A new day, a fresh start, a blank slate.

Cudddle up with a good book, a cup of tea or coffee and relax.
