Who else has a love hate relationship with the rain? I love it when I’m inside but dread it when I am driving or walking in it. Today is one of those days; the wind is howling, sky is roaring and the rain is pouring. While I sip on some cocoa it is relaxing to gaze out the window and take in the trees knowing that in a few short weeks the mass holidays will take place. It’s a time of mourning which I try not to focus on but it is okay to be sad at the fact that this year will undoubtedly be very different. Knowing that loved ones should stay away is a difficult thing to swallow.
