It’s pretty bad outside. Sideways rain. Feels like it’s been that way for 6 months. Woke up late. Hurrying. Rush to the airport and get on the plane. The storm pounds the windows. Long wait. Hungry. Finally take off.
Acceleration. Liftoff. Turbulence. Grab the arm rests to pretend you’re protecting yourself.
And in less than 10 minutes you’re above it all.
Blue sky. Warm sunshine. Calm.
No matter how bad the storm gets the blue sky is always there. We just can’t see it.
We just have to take a moment to open our eyes to the storm, the climb, and the sky.
