As the old saying goes"April Showers Bring May Flowers". I believe it means that if you are in a situation and need input, that it will all be ok, that something good will come from it. It may be at first hard to find that one good thing, but first take a step back and review the situation, then look at your progress, and finally that one good thing will be right under your nose and it's that you had not noticed it at first. It is like losing the TV remote, it is always in the last place you think not to look. Another great saying to finish what I am trying to say is. "A piece of gold did not start out as a piece of gold, It started out as a lump of coal". This means if something at first looks ugly or your not satisfied with something. Just keep brushing up on it or polish it till it is gold. And finally as I leave you this month and pursue my endeavors in life and State Council I leave you with a final note. "look to the past for guidance and reference, but do not emphasize upon it yet look to the future for adventure and life". Best wishes and happy endings.
