Rain

(Rain on the living room window)

We went from a chilly frost to a rather warm rain the past 24 hours. When I went to bed last night the rain was coming down at a steady pace which lulled me to sleep. What has been a peaceful rain for us has been wreaking havoc in the southern states. The news didn’t look good this morning.

I quit my job yesterday. My last day was supposed to be next Tuesday, but I made an executive decision and took charge of my life and this pain. Going to work has not helped me in the least. I suspect it’s been making things worse.

I knew my job was causing a lot of stress in my life. I never realized how much until I arrived home last night after a long day in the pharmacy and had this overwhelming sense of having put down a very heavy burden. I can’t begin to describe what a relief it is to know I don’t have to use every bit of energy I have to drag myself off to work anymore.

I feel as though I’ve done a major decluttering of my life. :))

Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby. ~Langston Hughes
