This morning in my gratitude journal I wrote that I was grateful for dust. I really am.
During the winter it’s usually cloudy and rainy in Seattle, and this year has been extraordinarily wet.
Last week the sun only came out for a few minutes and I was in the kitchen when it started shining in my window. Instantly I was surrounded by rainbows created because I have crystals hanging in the window. They are breathtaking to watch dancing all over the room. At the same time I looked around the kitchen and living room. Everything was covered in a fine layer of dust because we are remodeling our basement. Construction dust is everywhere.
I took a few minutes and asked myself about how sunshine, dust and rainbows apply to my life:
- It took sunshine for me to see both the dust and the rainbows.
- At first noticed the rainbows – then I noticed a fine layer of dust everywhere.
- My life is like this, I have rainbows and dust in my life.
- Light helps me see them both, so I enjoy the rainbows and sweep up the dust.
- I am so grateful for both rainbows and dust.
- I love the contrast.
I could have wished there was no dust, but if we didn’t have dust we, wouldn’t have a remodeled bedroom, bathroom and family room downstairs. Instead I decided to love the dust too
