“Nothing is more beautiful than the smile that has struggled through the tears.”

– Demi Lovato

In recent days, what seems to be a truth of nature, and human beings, has come to my attention: Sooner or later every storm runs out of rain.

First the thunder fades away, the raindrops reduce, the winds subside, and a soft stillness fills the air. Finally, then, a ray of warm and welcome sunshine peeks through the once-dark clouds, as if coming out of its hiding place.

So, too, with human beings, and “their smiles through their tears.”

First, when the source of the pain – the thunderous pain – fades away, there is a brief time when the inner turmoil subsides, and a moment or two of hope that the storm is truly over, fills the heart. Then the tear drops from the soul slowly dissipate. Finally, then, the emotions peek out, look around, and then send a message to the smile muscles that says, “It’s okay to leave your hiding place.”

Demi Lovato got it just right: that smile, breaking through that pain, with the warmth, light and peace it brings – they return. There truly is nothing more beautiful.

And on that you can count: Every storm runs out of rain. When ready, the smile and its sunshine will return. And there is nothing more certain than a natural truth. In that you should have faith, today, tomorrow and during your next, inevitable storm, whether it arrives at work, at home, or otherwise.

This faithful and inspiring reminder came to us from a friend in the music industry, one who deeply understands not just soul music, but, too, the “music of the soul.” We appreciate his continual guidance on this journey of life. Thank you, Good Friend, for this truly lovely thought.
