Life can be the Sunshine,
On peaceful days with bright blue skies,
Or life can be the raindrops,
That fall like tears squeezed from your eyes,
Life can be the heaven,
That you'll only reach through hell,
Since you won't know that you're happy,
If you've not been sad as well,
Life can teach hard lessons,
But you'll be wiser once you know,
That even roses need both sunshine,
And a touch of rain to grow.


I found this poem this morning and I had to share it with you. I think it's really beautiful and a lovely gentle reminder that in order to grow and bloom we sometimes need to weather a storm.

with love,
Samantha
