The Day The Heavy Rains Came

Flooding And The Roads Were Dangerous

If we look for miles we can see rolling hills and lots of trees. The sun shines through the leaves and brightens each color we see. Then all this seemed to change overnight. High winds and heavy rains came. The roads became rough and almost impossible to travel. The animals were brought inside to keep out of harm's way. The rain beat hard against the glass. We all wondered how long it would last. The town of Wayitis became so quiet and still. People that would normally be walking around downtown or out in the fields were inside waiting for clearer skies to come. When we can't do the things we have always done. It makes us think about how good we have it every day. No matter what situation we deal with it can be challenging and upsetting. If we all have some patience and understanding. Stop the complaining. Better days will come. We can't always have what we want. If we help each other when the time comes then things will have a way of working out. Unfortunately, tomorrow the carnival was coming to town. It travels across the country and it comes every year. The children look forward to such a great time. This year it will be canceled because of rain. We look forward to next year when it will be back again. I don't know who started it. Someone made painted face masks and before you know it all the children were soon wearing a mask. It wasn't long before the adults joined in the good times. So many different colors and styles. Each covering someone's face. It is funny how we think we know each other. When you cover up someone's mouth it is hard to tell what they are saying. The rain continued on and off all week. Children little by little began to go outside. People got back to work and doing things had to do. People in the town of Wayitis kept their masks on for the whole week. The children thought it was great. They often wish they could wear masks again next year maybe for two weeks or longer. The whole town made a good time of something that they couldn't control. Maybe us adults can learn an important lesson. We can all be creative and find new ways to enjoy the people and the times we love. No matter if it is the rain or any problem that makes life impossible if we all put on a mask we may see a different view.

Brenda Arledge There are a lot of strange things that happen in our lives. Wouldn't it be great to connect with our loved ones and friends who have passed on and move in a direction that makes us happier? I will let you know about any strange things that happen to me. Thank you so much for reading and enjoying. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Hey that sounds like an interesting idea.

We recently had a pair of subscription sunglasses show up after being missing for a little over a week.

Of course they were in plain sight where we would have seen them if they were there before.

Maybe I will try this and see if I can spot one visiting.

Take care and let me know how it goes for you.

Brenda Arledge I think the real reason we have trouble seeing ghosts or spirits is we want everything right away. It doesn't work that way. It is not in our time but when they come they arrive whenever and wherever it is not up to us. We have no control. Children accept that and are surprised every time. We try to make rules and restrictions. I believe our loved ones are here all the time around us and if we be our true selves they will come back often. Have an open mind and encourage visits. Many people see spirits in their dreams because while they sleep they let there guard down. Keep trying and record any visits. i will do the same. Have fun and enjoy with love. Thank you so much for all your comments.

Dream on,

I believe you are right. I think I still have alot of imagination left inside of me.

We are creative ones so our imagination holds on a bit longer.

But there is something about being a kid that I cannot quite put my finger on.

Like they say only young children can see the spirits of ghosts. When we are young our minds have nothing set in stone..we can think freely.

Brenda Arledge I think we only misplaced our imagination. It is easy enough to find. Stop and close your eyes and think like a kid again. Overtime that imagination will return. Bigger and greater than ever. It is easy to get overwhelmed with life's problems and the more we focus on the bad the harder and harder it is to see the good. We have to reach a happy medium. The bad does exist but it doesn't have to control the way we live and think. At least that are my thoughts. No proof behind it except in my writings. Feel free to challenge me and put me to the test. Maybe we can both learn something in the process. Have a wonderful and amazing day.

Chrish Canosa To see someone smile and laugh and enjoy life isn't that something we all want. We can't do it alone. If we could it wouldn't be as much fun and certainly wouldn't last. I am so happy every time I see a comment. I don't know where it will lead. I get a new thought and direction and then a bigger and nicer outcome. Thank you so much for reading and caring. Have a sweet and wonderful day. Then once again we can laugh, cry and share what life gives us, and once again we can learn from that blessing.

Dream on,

You are right!

We need to see things from a different point of view.

Children are so resilient. They can see things so much clearer than us. I guess we lost part of our imagination.

Good write.

Thanks for sharing and stay safe.

Chrish Canosa We are so happy to see that you are alright. It is tough seeing so much destruction by nature.Our hearts and prayers go out to all those people that were in harms way. That they may soon piece their life back together. Thanks so much for sharing and caring. Have a great day.

Chrish Canosa from Manila Philippines on November 03, 2020:

Thanks a lot for the prayers, we're safe.

But most of people aren't :'(

I'm sure it'll be fine. Thanks again to you and your wife for the prayers and concern we truly appreciate it

Chrish Canosa In the past we have only had rain and lots of snow in the winter. Please, stay safe and let me know as soon as it is over. I never had to face such a serious and dangerous time. My wife and I send you our prayers for you, your family, and everyone in the Philippines. Thank you so much for sharing and caring.

Chrish Canosa from Manila Philippines on October 31, 2020:

We are now preparing for the super typhoon that will probably land in any moment. I hope after this disaster do people really learn? Same situations on repeat same mistakes on repeat

But I'm still with you (We will learn) no matter the negativities I see and no matter how impossible it is right now.

Happy week end!! A bunge of love from the philippines :-)
