When your life is a storm, there is always someone there to be your umbrella.~ Unknown
Who’s your umbrella? Or do you have more than one?
I was looking for umbrella quotes, when I came across this beautiful one. We all need people in our lives who support us; who stand next to us in difficult times, and allow us to lean on them when necessary. My main umbrella is and always will be Master T, the love of my life.
But, I am in the privileged position that I don’t have only one umbrella. There are more people I can lean on. My best friend comes to mind, and I know that even if I need her in the middle of the night, I can call her. She will support me through thick and thin, as I will do her. My oldest daughter is a huge support too, and many times a voice of reason, as she has been in the recent situation with my son. However, I rarely lean on her, but prefer her leaning on me, as should be with parents and children.
But, those who support you don’t only have to be those you see in real life. Sometimes you meet people online, and get support from them too, something I have experienced a lot during my online years. Some of those people, some of whom I have met once or twice, others not at all, have been supportive in some difficult situations, and will be forever grateful for them pulling me through. They know who they are.
I love my collection of umbrellas, and hope I’m an umbrella to some of them too!
