Cloudy Skies

What's the weather like today? Clear and sunny? Cloudy? Dull and stormy? The weather is ever-changing, just like our thoughts. If only we could control them. Choose what our day would be like. But that just isn't possible. Instead, we must learn to accept them. Put on our wellies and embrace the wet, miserable days--go splashing in the puddles! Join Sam on his journey through his week. His highs and lows. His clear skies and storms. His changing emotions and how he learns to handle them.
