Gloomy days...not all that bad.


Gloomy days. They are the days you can stay in bed late without feeling too guilty. They are the days you can justify spending more time in the shower. They are the days that you realize you are so immersed in God's word you forget about your coffee and it gets cold. They are the days you spend watching Thomas the Train with your son. They are the days you can spend hours in the bookstore, or as long as you son will be content. They are the days where you can put a little extra cocoa in your hot cocoa. They are the days you get the urge to clean. They are the days when you are so thankful for your fireplace to curl up next to and read a book. They are the days that snuggling up with your husband feels really secure. They are the days that make you look forward to sunny days.This has been our life for the last 4 days and it has not been all that bad.

Oh I know exactly what you mean! I love gloomy days every once in a while, especially when I can be home. Beautifully written. By the way, is that your photograph? I love it!

Hi Anne,

I love gloomy days, they remind me of me.

Actually, true! I get creative on gloomy, thoughtful days so I love them. I especially love them in the Autumn, with the turning of the seasons.
