The sun sets on another day…
I enjoyed sunset as I watched the world fade to dark and I smiled at the interactions of the day. There are some things that you just have to smile to.
I think it’s funny how a child’s eyes can be so discerning and about how many children songs and stories are meant to uplift the child even more. After picking up my grandson I began singing songs and he listened and clap after every one. It was somewhere in the middle that I began singing The Itsy Bitsy Spider. Mind you, I had sung this song hundreds of times before but today I listened to my voice with a new thought in mind. Today I thought about how super that spider was.
You see, the Itsy Bitsy Spider went up the water spout. The spider had a goal and pushed his way through to find resolution and satisfaction. As his usual down came the rain and washed the spider out. That spider faced adversity and had a huge setback. In the end up came the Sun and dried up all the rain and the Itsy Bitsy Spider went up the spout again.
Why is this fascinating? Mostly because the spider had a goal faced setbacks and didn’t let anything get in their way to find the goal again. Like so many other things the Itsy Bitsy Spider was a go-getter that was going to succeed and in doing so perhaps we’ll teach my grandson not to give up.
How many times do people stop when the rain comes down and washes them out. It’s time for that to stop. It is time for us all to acknowledge our ability to climb again after the sun dries up the rain. It might seem silly but it is 100% true.
So as the sun sets on another day, the rain is dried up. There is nothing holding you back. There is no obstacle you cannot overcome. So let’s climb up the spout again, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and keep on climbing…
