If we’re honest, we want it to be summer every day.
We want smooth sailing on calm waters with gentle breezes.
We don’t like our lives to be disturbed with loss, sorrow, or failure.
We know a storm will eventually kick up, but we are still surprised when it happens to us.
Prepare yourself to endure seasons that are unpleasant, knowing that seasons always, end and another begins.
Life is a series of wonder and beauty. When you face sadness, you learn to value happiness all the more.
