a discouraging word and the skies are not cloudy all day." That phrase from a v-e-r-y old song, Home on the Range, has been running through my mind the past 2 weeks.
Not sure why I know a song about the west, but it's come to mind after all these years, since I've been trying to not say "a discouraging word." I'm tired of hearing only bad things and don't want to contribute to the negative vibe - there are some good things going on too. Plus, the round-about way of saying it's sunny -- "not cloudy all day" sounds a little like me.
