Rainy, Cloudy Weather Makes Me......

Feel cozy and content! We have had so very little rain this summer, that when we do get a day of rain, I thoroughly enjoy it! I light several candles, turn on my cute little lamp on my bakers rack, and just enjoy the soothing sounds of rain.

I am heading down to southern Mn to stay with my Aunt and Uncle this afternoon, I hope to get there around 6:30-7:00, and then tomorrow I am going to visit my Grandma who is in the hospital with pneumonia. My Grandma is a spunky 92 year old who just recently moved into the nursing home. She has been living on her own up until that point. I have always been super close with all my Grandparents, so it's hard to see them go downhill. It amazes me to think of how much she taught me without even knowing she did:) I think about that with my own kids, and most of the time I smile, but I gotta tell ya, sometimes that makes me cringe-the things they will pick up from me! I *try* to model myself the way God intends me to be, but that's not always easy either. I still have that super stubborn (thanks Mom), must be different (thanks Dad), type of personality that makes it hard to be "Godly". All I can do is pray that God will direct my husband and I to teach our girls "His" way and not our way.

Have a safe trip, Cara. I also love rainy days. Here in Portland we have rain for months on end during the winter months, and I can't get enough. It rained here the other day and my kids asked me to open the back door so that they could hear the rain.

Your girls are beautiful, and with such a great mom they're going to turn out just fine.

Sometimes I just love a rainy day to snuggle in bed with a magazine, when it's just a little chilly and you need a sweatshirt on, but we are hot muggy Florida and in rainy season here so it rains everyday and lets just say it gets old.

Rainy weather makes me feel CONTENT too. Yes, it is difficult to see the changes that age brings to grandparents. :( That is so good that you have life lessons tucked into your heart from her though.
