I love a rainy morning...

Today has been a great morning. My oldest precious son is now 14. Wow! It really doesn’t seem possible. Last night we stayed up too late for a school night because we were having so much fun, just hanging out together. I was teasing him last night that he needed to promise me that he wouldn’t be a “bear” this morning. I had to explain what I meant. He was smart enough to not make any promises he wasn’t sure that he could keep. He was great this morning. We met in the living room and I gave him a big hug and said, “Happy Birthday. Wow. 14. I can’t believe it. That doesn’t seem right.” He just grinned from ear to ear. He was a happy child this morning. It is amazing how big he is getting!

I suppose that should have been on my other blog. Today we woke to dark skies and tropical downpours. David mentioned that he loved mornings like this. I told him that I did too. There’s just something intangible that I appreciate about dark skies, heavy rain, fog, and water puddles everywhere. We had plenty of all of those this morning. After two years of drought conditions it seems even nicer.
