I look at the sky, the sun hides behind the curtain of clouds, a sign that it will rain again. The oxymoron of the day is that today is the first day of summer and should be ushered in with the sun and a clear sky, though evidently that is not the case. 

I welcome summer anyway.

Like anything in life, when we want something, it doesn’t always come in the package we expect it too and today is no different. Today not only marks the first day of summer but a day to start a new season in life without any preconceived notions of how this season should start.  Let’s focus not on the storm or the rain, but on the fact that the sun is still there and that today is still the first day of summer. New things for this part of all our lives are found in between the drops of rain as well as on those hot and sun-filled days. 

I welcome in summer today and I welcome in a new season in life. 

Happy First Day of Summer!
