Shh! Just listen….
That’s what The Mom was doing last night–sitting on the deck under the awning (on the one circle-spot where it wasn’t getting wet), just listening. No computer, I couldn’t believe it! But her mind did wander a few times… thinking about various things; it can really be an effort to get yourself to *pay attention*… to the sound of the rain… many drops pattering on the awning, some splashy dribblings at the edge of it…
Of course, the odd time there was something to wake her up and remind her–like *wake* her up: we heard her yell from inside, when that one extremely loud crash of thunder sounded!
Thank you God, for getting our attention when necessary. To think what blessings could be missed if You didn’t!
