Last night we had severe thunderstorms, tornado warnings and hail. We are cotton farmers and the cotton is turning white, almost ready to pick. The crops that did survive the drought were damaged, some severely, by last night’s storms. We are praying that when we see them in the light of day, the damage won’t be too bad. Every member of our family, either directly or indirectly, depends on successful production and harvest every year. It is a crazy business and I suppose it takes a gambler at heart to stay in it. With ‘Mother Nature‘ for a partner you need a lot of faith and a lot of luck.
In any case today will be a good day because I get to spend it with our 3-year-old granddaughter, Zane! We are going to go to town so I can get a haircut and maybe we will both get our nails done! She never meets a stranger and is always doing or saying something that just cracks me up. All three of our youngest grandchildren seem to be born comedians! We will make the rounds in town and see what fun we can get into.
Just in case you are wondering why I have retreated from posts with political overtones, it is because I found myself in overload mode. Between the pure stupidity in Washington DC and all the shenanigans being pulled by this administration and my own personal challenges, I decided to look back on some sweeter times and concentrate on today’s blessings that I wasn’t enjoying enough.
Grace and Peace to you all, may the wind be always at your back!
