The flash news is ~ no flashes! We had a thunderstorm last night and one
this morning too, but for the moment we are flash free. Hooray!
I have noticed that I am starting to get through these storms more easily.
If I stay distracted I don't panic so much. Last night I was talking on the
phone with a fellow blogger and I was enjoying the chat so much that I
hardly noticed the thunderstorm. When we finished our lengthy and fun
chat, David asked me if I noticed the thunderstorm. I told him that I did
but I didn't sweat it because it was a small one. He laughed and said no,
it was actually a fairly big storm.
I was both surprised and pleased. Apparently I am becoming better
acclimated. That's a good thing! I am so proud of myself I am going
to treat myself and go to our library this afternoon and check out some
books I have been wanting to read. Maybe a trip to Hobby Lobby too ;-)
I'll do it in between the raindrops. Notice I am not mentioning
thunder and lightning lol.
That's the good news for this morning. After so many days of being stuck
in the house with nothing to do but think, i.e. no blogging etc, I have
come to the conclusion that I need a drama free life. I am going to do the best
I can to stay focused on the good things. So here is another good thing to
share with y'all this morning …. We have had so much rain that we have
not had to turn on the sprinklers! The reservoirs, lakes and streams are full.
Actually, our Guadalupe River has been at and above flood stage several times
but I am not complaining because we used to be in a drought.
See that? Flash free and well watered trees, lawn and garden. There's
always a silver lining if we just look for it. Have a happy Saturday
y'all. Here comes the rain again. Praise the Lord!
Oh and what is Bentley doing right now? Napping with his daddy.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
