Stormy Days…

I write the title of this post figuratively. It has been a stormy few days mentally. It is times like this that I am bereft of words; not knowing what to say.

I did continue my morning hike today. This morning found me at the shopping center sitting with Big S.

“It is supposed to rain today,” I told him.

“I will be home long before that happens,” He replied blithely.

“How much have you made today?” I then asked him always curious about his panhandling activities.

“Ten bucks,” He replied.

“I don’t see how you do it,” I said as I laughed.

“Little old ladies,” Big S said as he grinned.

I don’t condone Big S’s method of garnering income. I left Big S sitting out in front of the store and walked down to the train tracks. My good fortune found me walking up just as a train was passing. I smiled. Today is going to be okay.

One day at a time, right? I wish every day could be easy for you. That's not life, though. Glad you caught sight of the train. Good fortune, like you said. Something unexpected to put a smile on your face.
