Why Does It Keep Doing That?

We are easily spoiled when it comes to nice weather, green all around and sunny skies.

Of course we had been looking forward to the warmer days and green landscape after such a dreary winter, so that could explain our behavior and lack of tolerance for anything other than bright sunshine and pretty spring days. I mean, haven’t we earned it?😊. Haven’t all of us earned it?

On Friday night as we were sitting having a late dinner and looking out at the trees. My hubby mentioned it getting dark and my immediate response was “why does it keep doing that?!”

I identify a lot with John Denver and his love of sunshine and mountains. In fact, If you ask me sunrise or sunset? My answer will ALWAYS be sunrise so when you start taking my sunshine away, I tend to get a little cranky especially when we haven’t had very much.

Today, Saturday, was a very rainy, very windy, gray day. I do like rain and all it does for us but there is a point where I have to say enough already. Bring back my sunshine☀️!

Or, like my dad used to sing to my mother…”You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy, when skies are gray, you’ll never know dear how much I love you, please don’t take my sunshine away.” It’s a great song and that is what sunshine does, it brings joy and light into the world. And, plus, to me, sunrises represent a new beginning…a way to start fresh and new. Kind of like the way I feel about Tuesdays…my do over day😀. When the sun rises, it’s time to start again on a brand new day.

As John Denver sings in his lyrics, sunshine makes you smile, it makes you feel happy, it’s like a good song that can pick you up out of the blues, and it “looks so lovely on the water”. I can attest to that. When we are on the boat, the water looks so refreshingly beautiful and inviting as the sun hits it and we can see it glistening under the suns rays.

I am so thankful and grateful for the longer days with more daylight but I still have that tinge of sadness and the strong pull to hold on tight and not let it go when the sun starts to set and my sunshine goes away until hopefully the next morning when it will rise again and bring me joy, happiness, and warmth to brighten my day. And, so I keep the hope that tomorrow will be a sunny day.

I hope you have sunshine tomorrow to brighten your day and bring you a little joy☀️💚☀️

Have a Happy and Bright Sunday!

  1. I enjoy the beauty of a setting sun, letting it wash through my soul; but I LOVE being up before the sun rises, watching the sky begin to light up and the world awakens. It is a beautiful, quiet time, especially with my cup of coffee in hand! I hope yours and my tomorrow are sunny and happy, Diane!

    All 3 are about freedom in my opinion.

    John’s music is considered corny by some in this modern day. But I believe he was a pretty wholesome musician. Excellent songwriter, singer, guitarist.. total package.

    Great post!

  5. You are so right Diane. Rain is beautiful but sunshine is my lifeline. Though we get sunshine whole year around here but during rainy season if I don’t see sun for 2-3 days.. I start feeling depressed. I always dream that it should rain in the night and morning should be bright with sunshine!!
