Look for the rainbow

After a storm has passed

There is always a rainbow

Sometimes it’s just difficult to see

We went out to Smith Point beach again yesterday, after 7 pm. The kids really seem to enjoy these evening trips to the beach. Even the sprinkles of rain that sent some beach goers packing didn’t deter them from playing. I wouldn’t let them bring the boogie board, though, there are no lifeguards on the beach after 5 pm. I noticed that the day parking fee is up to $12. I remember 10 or 12 years ago it was only $2.

Keep trying

Keep trying

Even when you’re tired

And discouraged

Success

As well as growth of your spirit

Is only achieved

When you reach

Beyond your pain and mistakes
