Every cloud has a silver lining.

What have your clouds and silver linings been?

In recent weeks, the silver lining in the dark clouds overhead has been sweet summer rain! We sure need it.

My cloud happened in 2004 when I left my job of 9 years without having another lined up. It was not something I had planned for but the situation there had gotten to the breaking point. The silver lining is that it gave me time to go back to school and learn sign language and become an interpreter.

I love this quote, which somebody posted on this same discussion, which I also put also on another site. :)

No silver linings at all lately.

I'm not whining...just no silver lining at this point. Shrek just got a healed up and now I have more heart problems/tests coming up for something new. You tell me that I must find the silver lining...

PF - remember that you only see the silver lining from the outside. You have to get yourself out of the cloud to see the silver.

My favorite Bible saying "and it came to pass" so it didn't come to stay. Things will get better.

As soon as it's not hanging over my head...until then, I'm fairly scared spitless.

And I don't blame you, PF. Your cloud has been much too heavy. Hope your tests come out better than you could imagine! {{{{{PF}}}}}
