Today is the first day of summer today. It almost slipped by without being noticed. We've had so much rain here (10 days straight so far) that I almost stopped checking to see what the forecast would be. Except, alas, I am a bit addicted. I check the forecast at least once if not more often a day. I don't know how I survived when I had to wait until the news hourly to hear it and goodness if I missed it I'd have to wait for the next hourly report to hear it. Thank God for internet to fuel my addiction!
I know I am not the only one that checks the weather daily. The weather is the opening topic of most connections. I phone someone and the first thing we talk about is often the weather. If you meet someone in the grocery store you talk about how hot/cold it is, Weather is usually part of the conversation my husband and I have within the first 5 minutes of our day. It impacts his work, our kids activities, what to wear, and plans for the upcoming days.
I try to remind myself that there is a reason for all weather. The wind spreads pollen, the rain cleans up the dust, the snow provides protection for the delicate plants underneath, and the sun makes all my beautiful flowers bloom! So my vow for the rest of this week.....to enjoy the weather ......whatever Mother Nature brings!
I lead a full life full of love, adventure and growth. Check out my latest thoughts here.
