Happy chirps call out from the hidden branches overhead.
Splashing in the distance as fins break the surface and return to the deep.
The feeling of cool grass on bare feet.
Ice cream and frozen lemonade shared with a friend.
Schedule free days and peaceful moments.
These are the simple joys of sunny days and treasures for the soul.

Come and sit in my garden. Let’s enjoy the sun and sip a Southern style sweet tea as the scent of honeysuckle drifts in the warm air. Let’s listen for the mocking bird singing his songs which are cobbled together from bits and pieces of the songs he has learned from others. We’ll count the butterflies that flutter about the yard playing tag. We’ll find shapes in the clouds and make up stories about the scenes they play out as they change. It really doesn’t matter many grains of sand pass through the hour glass or ticks of the clock echo on into the past. Time with a friend is never wasted and sunny days add up to make sunny lives.

There are days that are absolutely awesome. The birds are singing, the clouds are big and puffy, and sun is shining. A balmy breeze rushes through and seems to give you a hug as it passes on beautiful days like that. Warm summer days are days that are custom made for creating memories. A quick trip to the park or the lake and nothing to do except be with a loved one and hold hands while taking a leisurely stroll. I wouldn’t need a camera to have the image of such a day forever in my heart.
But, today is definitely not one of those days. Today we have a visitor to our wild Wonderful West Virginia. The the last tropical storm to make landfall on the Atlantic coast has decided that we need to enjoy it’s presence. The wind has been relatively quiet but the rain bands have pushed their way past the natural barrier of the Blue Ridge Mountains and are planning a few days of fun. In truth it means that those who have come to enjoy the white water rafting and kayaking will have a great time with our rivers swollen from the rain. It’s something that happens quite often this time of year. The sky is dark and foreboding and for a while every stream coming off the mountain is a miniature river. These are the days when I take the sunshine out of its bottle in the form of a photo. I’m instantly drawn back into that perfect sunny day. I can even smell the dinner being made on a grill.
We can’t expect that every day will be awesome. Rain has to fall and like everything else there will be days when we have more than we need at the moment. That’s life. On other days we’ll see more than out share of beautiful weather. My whole life I’ve been told to look on the bright side. As I’ve grown I’ve discovered that looking on the bright side is much easier when you carry the sunshine inside of you.
