Rain and thunderstorms

I believe in miracles~I tell myself this everyday. Life sometimes gets hectic and crazy. So we have to have something to hold on to. I hold on to miracles. I like rainy days like today. You can reflect on the beauty of the rain falling and I like the smell of rain. CLEAN!!It makes everything cleaner. Washing away the dirty world we live in. I still have Nick and Lloyd is home so I have been painting and made chicken noodle soup and grilled cheese for lunch. I am doing minimal things like laundry. Plus Nick and I are going to bake oatmeal cookies. It is so bad out we didn't drive him to school. That's ok with me. My grands brighten my days. What do you hold on to? When life is crazy and there are not enough hours in the day how do you relax?I like to just turn everthing off and listen to the birds singing. Really listen. I know the different bird sounds now by listening to bird jam!!I like learning new things. I have a wonderful red winged black bird, that visits every day. I love his sound. I also love the loud mouthed blue jay and the mockingbirds. I love them all what am I saying.LOL So turn everything off today just for a few minutes and listen to the birds. I have so many animal tales as I am the animal whisperer. They flock to me for some reason. Oh well it is cookie baking time so better get with it. Have a great day.
