I caught myself today
breaking one of my own rules.
It was an unexpectedly cloudy day,
and someone asked me if rain
had been in the forecast.
“No,” I said, “I thought
it was going to be a nice day!”

So, what’s wrong with that?
Well, this project has reminded me
that every day is a nice day,
a wonderful day,
a beautiful day.
If we only relied on sunny days
to make us feel good,
we’d wind up with a lot of bad days!
(In fact, cancel all rainy days
and we’d be living in a desert)

No matter the weather,
beauty abounds.
Like this day-brightening

patchwork quilt of colors
painted on the side
of a building.
Make it a beautiful day!
