One Liner Wednesday – It’s Raining


“I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.”
Maya Angelou

    1. I like the rain, I just wish the ground had time to dry out. (Did I tell you we discovered a persimmon tree?)

      It’s not the legs – it’s the bum knee that I’m working on.

    1. We have a lot of rain as you know. Right now it is an easy gentle rain, but that could change by tonight. Lost luggage is hard especially when traveling to special events.

  1. I love this quote. I’ve always been impressed by people who can walk in the rain and it doesn’t look like it’s raining at all. I’ve always wondered how people do that. A perfect analogy for life.

      1. Love that! I always chose to leave my umbrella at home, believing that the rain is really not all that bad, but then I regret it later and wonder why I left it. Also, much like life, but I can’t decide what the umbrella signifies.

  2. I could live with more rainy days…lost luggage is inconvenient, but not the end of the world, and gratefully my hubby is an untangle champ. Live is good. Maya Angelou = wise!

    1. It is nice when our significant others bring needed skills to the table. 😊 Maya Angelou had a rare outlook on life.

  3. Rain, lost luggage, and christmas lights. Hmmm. Being a gardener rain is important. Not all blessings come on a schedule. And lets face it one does not want to skip a blessing. As for the other two so far I have not lost luggage. Though my attitude is hey you wing it. As for the strings of tangled lights most days I have the patience to deal with them. And now it is cut in half. Still have the outdoor lights to deal with. Now we have a pre-lit tree. And it has changed from tangled to weight. It is much easier to leave the box in place and move one segment of the three part tree. Moving the box is a two person job. How would you like your chaos ? One teaspoon, two, or a bushel basket ?

    1. I like your analogy about measuring the chaos John. y a live tree every year. Getting it hime and i. The house has becoema chore for the two of us. We do enjoy it though. And blessings? The small ones seem to be the sweetest.

  4. Gentle rain and a good hat is a nice walk for me. Luggage lost – grrr. Tangled lights – all I can think of is how the situation was handled in the Griswald home.

  5. Enjoy the rain. Love untangling anything and Christmas lights are no exception. I’ve never experienced lost luggage. Lucky me ☺️
