|Pelted by falling rain|
The heavy downpours had the flowers drooping and looking rather dejected. Subconsciously, these flowers had brought a smile to my face and lightened my spirit on the way to the chickens and geese. Their effect on me wasn't obvious until they were drooping from the rain. My hope was that it wasn't the end of the season for these cheerful yellow flowers.
This could be what my sister's pastor in OK meant when he posted these words, "Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."
September 11, 2011 - America is back up and living.
