I Can See Clearly Now 
Jimmy Cliff 

 I can see clearly now the rain is gone. 
I can see all obstacles in my way. 
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind. 
It's gonna be a
sunshiny day. 

What a difference a few miles makes -
from the frost on the car windows when I started out,
to the warm embrace of a sunshiny day.

I embarked on a visit with with one child in need of focus and guidance while at the same time providing long-distance breathe coaching to another embarking on a first real job interview.
Don't talk to me about multitasking - I'm a mom.  It's what we do.  It's who we are.
In my years I've realized that there is no such thing as stability,
merely periods of static chaos which we affectionately refer to as "calm".
Embrace them.
There is a saying (or part of a saying) "don't pray when it rains if you don't pray when the sun shines."
Nar a day goes by that I don't raise a silent prayer.
Rain or shine.

the temporary nature of existence
is that this too shall pass
(thank God!)

    And oh my, we were in a parallel universe today with your saying and the quote I shared (do you hear the twightlight music playing, haha) :)

    1. I thought the same when I read your post - and yes, I hear the music! lol!

  11. Nicki, Nicki, Nicki....YOWZA! That first shot is a superb composition of so many elements which under your eye are downright beautiful. It is the perfect accompaniment to the lyric. Thanks for linking up to Song-ography.

    That first picture is wonderful. I always wanted to shoot frosted windows, but got lucky enough not to have any ;)
