My moods and emotions definitely relate to the weather report. Sometimes I have poor visibility around my food plan. Other times, I see through partly cloudy skies. Widespread wind currents can blow me into forgetting I have a fatal disease and blur the hours ahead. Hazard reports of drifting snow, slippery ice, and strong blowing rain can take over any serenity I may have known when I began the day.

Tomorrow, the forecast is sunny and clear with highs of being grateful, but temptation could reach 70 percent. Daily lows blink yellow caution in areas surrounding noticeably loaded dinner plates.

But any day can be a lovely fair day to fly a flag and can lead me where I need to be. One day at a time, I’ll weather anything, with the courage I’ve learned, wisdom to accept things I cannot change, and forever with hope in my Higher Power—God.
