A short Story.  A day for fishing.  Before entering the park, a sign said:  “Rise above the storm.  There you will find the sunshine.”  She wondered why the day got off to a bad start.  Tensions rose between two minds.  Sunshine, where are you?  Emotions unraveling, not seeing eye to eye.  This moment shall pass, just laugh it away!  Things could be worst.  The car was parked at his favorite fishing spot.  She unfolded her camping chair in the sunshine and noticed a long log on the river.  Are those turtles resting on the log?  Indeed, a family of 6 all lined up.  She smiled when big papa turtle slid into the water and 2 others followed behind it.  Mama turtle and 2 babies laid sunbathing quietly as hours passed.   The turtles had erased the woman’s sadness, thanking God for the soothing goodness of gazing at them.  Thankfully she prayed, “wish I had the patience of these turtles.”  No fish was caught, but by the time the couple arrived home, saying to each other, “I’m sorry” made the rest of the day a winner.
