Clouds

“Be the rainbow in the storms of life. 
The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.” Lord Byron

Thanks everyone for your messages, am lucky to be in one of the dry places but can’t get to work because of flooding. Hope the water clears quickly so rebuilding can begin.
Sky Watch Friday is the highlight of my week, photos like this have become my journal and timeline to events or happenings, follow the link to see what 100s of bloggers from all over the world have found in their sky this week.

Saw the sweetest post over on Jill’s Bittersweet about thank you cards that inspired me to create

with a link to fun video clip about putting your gratitude in writing.

And Sarah's Beach Cottage for Good Life Wednesdays celebrating the little sprinkles of sunshine that folks find in their day.

Nice to hear from you. I saw the news on tv my jaw dropped I can't believed it. I hear the flooding is in Queensland and Brisbane? And there is also part of Australia that has forest fire? I hope everybody is fine and nobody gets hurt. Be safe and keep warm!
