Monday is an S

It was a loud scary night.

I remember when I was kid I loved storms.  I could sleep so well listening to the blowing wind and the patter of drops.  Now I worry that the tree in the back will bust apart and will damage the house.  I worry that the roof will peel off and the house will flood.  I fear the lights will go out and mess up my alarms and I will be late to work.  Basically, I hate rain.

More rains are predicted to be on the way.  That is how I want to spend my Monday, crowed into an interior classroom with 90 kids.  Please, for all that is good and right let there me no tornado warnings.

Had a little vase of sunshine waiting for me today.  My very good friend decided that I deserved flowers.  I love  her!

Pink tulips represent perfect happiness.  (It has to be true I found it online.) Ironic since the gift giving was inspired by a most unhappy of blog postings.  I do think that they brought me perfect joy today, even with all the gloom and doom outside.

 It is amazing how many blessings are around you when you take the time to look.
  1. Great friends
  2. Perfect job
  3. Loving family
  4. House that is still standing
  5. No hail damage on cars
