And because said rain did not include lightning and thunder my kids rejoiced!
This spring took a toll on our kids. The threat of tornado's and new house sounds made our kids shiver with fear. Even with the security of our basement, there was no squelching the anxiety that came over them when clouds came into our view. But today they danced.
They ran in and found the only two umbrellas in the house. We used to have more - themed ones in fact! Numerous birthday and Christmas presents would include a coveted umbrella. As always though, someone would come in with a poked eye or a whacked side. Tears would follow as I confiscated the umbrellas so I gave up. Seems as though the black ones do just fine!
And why is it kids can never just use an umbrella? Does it always have to look like you are in the middle of a hurricane? Sheesh. But this time I didn't take them...
Our best looking grass is the weeds in our front yard. Why is that? I am sure those suckers caught the most rain too.
These guys will have to rely on my watering. Poor things...
Working hard to look at reasons to be thankful. Life is life but God is always good. Thankful for the refreshing rain that came today to give us something to smile about. Thankful that it cooled our parched yard and made it a fun playground. Thankful for every good and perfect thing.
