The weather is terrible today. We woke up to a light dusting of snow on the ground. The temperature had dropped to the 30’s and the wind could pierce your soul. Later in the day, the temperature warmed up enough that the rest of the precipitation fell as a driving rain. The sky was ominous and dark the entire day. You could hardly tell it was daytime.
The fact that I was irritable all day does not surprise me.
However, I was able to find gratitude despite the awful weather. On Mondays I have voice lessons. No matter how difficult or draining my day is I feel renewed and at peace after I’ve been singing for a half hour. I am so grateful that I found my teacher. She is patient, kind, supportive, and understanding. At the same time, she pushes me out of my comfort zone so that I am regaining strength in my singing voice.
So, thank you, R.W.! I am so blessed to have you in my life.
