The end to a rainy week
Alhamdulillah. I’m glad the weather is finally clearing up after yesterday. But I do like rain though. And I love watching them from the window. Rain… water… they are powerful elements. They can change from being something serene to something threatening. This week the whole of Australia was struck by the news about the flood in Queensland. It is just shocking to watch on the news of how high the flood water had reached. Cars and houses submerged. Household items and personal belongings destroyed. One thing that I learned from watching the news about the aftermath of the flood was how fast the communities got back on their feet to help each other clean the streets and clean their affected houses. Watching that taught me that when unfortunate things happen to us, we just have to be strong and continue to get moving on what needs to be done. For everything that happens, there is a lot of lessons to be learned.
