Fall and Spring are my favorite seasons. I love to see the world around me going to sleep in the Fall, and I enjoy seeing it wake up in the Spring. I'm a little less trusting of Spring than I am the Fall. I've seen some of the deepest snowfalls of my life fall in April, and yet I've seen some of the most beautiful weather in April. It's unpredictable.
When I started college, I lived in Tulsa, OK. I had lived most of my life in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, and our worst weather was comprised of rainy days or a couple feet of snow over a Winter. We had all four seasons, and they typically changed like clockwork.
I was surprised to learn that during the Spring months in the Tulsa-Broken Arrow area we had tornadoes. If you've never been around a tornado, you're blessed. They are one of the most intense and scary things you'll experience. While I lived in Tulsa, I went to visit friends in Broken Arrow. It was about 7 miles from my Tulsa apartment. During that visit, a tornado touched down, and when I headed home there was little left for 5 of these 7 miles. It was amazing.
Living in Tulsa taught me a great lesson. No matter how dark it is, and no matter how scary life can become, the sun will come out tomorrow. You might be in the struggle of your life right now, and it might seem as dark as it can get, but the sun will come out again.
You might be fighting with a short sale negotiator who is making your life miserable, but the sun will come again. You might be in a pocket of the economy that hasn't seen any significant recovery, but the sun will come out again. You might even be on the verge of foreclosure yourself, it's stressful and unbelievable, but remember, the sun will come out again.
No matter how bad things seem today, the sun will come out again. The tornadoes of west are terrifying. If you don't take proper precautions, they can be deadly, but with a little preparation they soon pass, and the sun comes out again. Regardless of your circumstances today, just remember that the sun will come out again.
