Rainy Days and Mondays

Monday was never Dad's favorite day-
this one especially was extra dark gray.
Business was bad, meetings were planned.
Off to work Dad went - briefcase in hand.
Grumbling and groaning , he did complain,
"The last thing I needed today was rain."
He didn't notice it as he pulled it out of his case..
the umbrella he usually used had been replaced.
His daughter had wanted to brighten his day,
as soon as it opened- his cares went away.
He'd tackle this day with a smile on his face,
His head was now in a pink stripey place.
A spring in his step and a warm fuzzy heart,
His day was now off to a much better start.

I actually saw this guy this morning as I drove to the gym. I was myself grumbling and groaning and feeling quite blah. I bet that little umbrella worked it's magic on lots of people!

Thank you all! Sometimes the quick sketches have it all.... I'm trying to be looser with all of my work.
