Welcome to my world of writing! It's an exciting place to be - a world of joy, laughter, tears, smiles, frustration, and other emotions too deep to touch. Writing is my offering, my sacrifice - and I know that I am exactly where God wants me to be.

It's been supposed to rain today for a week, and when I woke up this morning the sky was still dark. I kept seeing Facebook posts from locals about the storm coming, so I told my Little Miss it was going to rain. She's very particular - she likes rain, she does not like thunder. (understandably) I told her it was getting dark out and about to rain, and she looked outside, threw her arms out in despair, and wailed "But then we can't play outside anymore again foreeeeever!" (really, I have no idea where she gets this dramatic flair...wink) She then remembered when we looked at the weather.com radar map a month ago, and excitedly said "Mama! I can help you measure how long its gonna rain! I can help you on the website!" (remember, she's 2 1/2...) I said, okay, we can go look at the map. We side up to the computer, pull up the website, and I show her the radar. Yikes. Big long thick band of red and yellow and greens coming out way. Pretty much coming everyone's way, that thing was huge! I told her what the colors meant and she's tracking it with her finger, a concentrated frown on her face. Then she announced (verbatim, I'm not kidding here) "All that rain is mighty dangerous! But we'll be safe in no time." Let's hope she's right ;) And if she ends up pursuing meteorology as a profession one day, I'm so telling this story to her boss.
