A river runs through it

We’ve been getting a lot of rain lately here in Oregon, making the rivers flood and spill over into the surrounding areas – creating havoc all around the state. There was a sinkhole near Mt. Hood Community College this week where the river running under the roadway flooded, saturating the ground and causing the road to sink in – completely shutting down that section of the road while repairs are underway. I went by there the other day and was thinking about all the damage water can cause when there’s a vast amount of it. And how repairs are underway and they are re-building the road where it collapsed. I feel like I’m in a similar place right now. My job and source of income collapsed and I’m in the process of rebuilding it. It’s scary when things fall apart around you, but what you build up in their stead can be good, if not better than what you had. It just takes time to rebuild again. I’m not sure if things are better for me yet, but good things are starting to happen and I’m hopeful that the best is still yet to come…
