Here comes the SUN?

>It's raining today. Rain, rain, rain. It's been raining every day for the past 4 days. Or maybe longer. Talk about depressing! I forget what the sun looks like.

I think it's yellow or perhaps orange, circular shaped, hanging up there in the sky against a blue background with a few wisps of white clouds hovering near. But I could be wrong. After all, I haven't seen it in a while.

Do we take the sun for granted? Is it any wonder some cultures worship it? Think about what the sun does and how it makes us feel. It provides warmth, light, energy, vitamin D, helps plants grow, and yes, makes us feel GOOD, cheerful, upbeat. Without it, life's a real downer.

I've tried turning on every light in the house to replace the sunlight but it's just not the same and of course my electric bill will soar. I just can't feel sunshiny happy without the sun.

So, I've posted a picture of the sun in the absence of the real one. I'm just gonna stare at it frequently throughout my day and repeat a little mantra: It's sunny, it's sunny, it's sunny!

I need to feel cheerful again. I'll let you know if it works.


  1. Nothing like a fabulous beatles song "Here comes the sun..." to cheer us up.

    Hope it makes you cheery!!! Just think sunny thoughts, rain can really bring the mood down!

  2. I'm like you in that I love the sun - and need to see it. I hope it comes back out for you soon.

  3. Of course, if you leave everything off, you can still run your bill up fening off the chill from the outside (as my wife and I discovered recently).
