Watering Troughs

We are expecting some bad spring weather this evening and some snow fall through the night. It's raining now with a bit of thunder and Streak just jumped in my lap for a "it'll be okay, buddy" confirmation.

I took the dogs out of a walk and got back a few minutes ago. While walking I noticed a pretty little sight. The spring rains are pooling up on the broad leaves of these tiny little plants. I just thought it was so beautiful.

For some reason this sight speaks a message of hope into some of my dark places. Some of these places need some "It'll be okay, sweet one" and a drink from the watering troughs.

Those little pools of water are beautiful once you have pointed them out. Leave it to you to find beauty in the smallest of places. By the way...a cosmic "it will be alright" has been sent your direction. Watch for it.

A very nice message! I like to see little plants growing up in odd places, in place you'd think they wouldn't survive, but somehow they do.

Funny, when I first read this, for a split second I took Streak to mean Brad.
