This morning we were reminded to be thankful for electricity.
We woke during the night to powerful thunderstorms.
About 15 minutes after we woke up,
our electricity was knocked out.
It was supposed to be turned on by now,
but I am writing from the library after doing some errand running.
I am also thankful for a little shopping trip yesterday.
The yearly birthday flower trip.
The flower pots are full
and one flower bed was brightened.
There is nothing like plant life to lift the spirits.
I am also thankful for the rain today -
all those plants need the rain to survive.
And of course,
I am thankful for 39 years of life.
Last year in the 30's.
Why did I ever think that 40 was old?
