...at least for a bit...but that was last week. Hey, I'm grateful!!
I haven't got much to share..but you will be happy for us when I tell you we finally got rain. A LOT but not as much as we need. Our poor state is still suffering while in Washington they had too much.
When I saw this hanging over our home...and not moving..I began to watch and hope. God didn't speak to me and tell me to build an ark..so..I didn't get overly excited.. :)
I began to look around and saw this....
Then these began to drift in further over...
Yep! Those looked like rain clouds to me. I dared to hope....
They seemed to get darker by the minute...
The sky in Southern California is seldom this brilliant color of blue..and I couldn't get enough of it and I hoped the sun would not burn the clouds up...and they didn't.
That night..the sky opened up and it rained so hard that we got out of bed to watch as it came down "in sheets and buckets.. It rained all night...and then slowed to a soft steady rain the next day.
You probably think it doesn't take much to get me excited when I can be so moved by clouds.
You are probably right to think that...but..
already I can tell that this rain will make for a pretty Springtime.
I hoped it would rain more..but no..it drifted off the the east...sadly.
Guess I have to do another naked rain dance. :) I would like to say it works every time but...*shrug* it doesn't.
Oh..exciting times in California!! (yawn..)
Today was our Sandy's birthday. Her sister came today and we cried, held each other and shared the dreams we have had of her.
In mine Sandra told me " Don't cry, I'm alright Mom, I'm tending the flowers." I woke crying. In my Erin's dream she came very close, held her sisters face in her hands and said "Fill my heart with love". Erin and Sandy were extremely close. I firmly believe our loved ones come to us like this.
Sandy was born April 5, 1959. She went to live with God and wait for us there on February 22, 2013.
She left behind a loving and devastated husband, son and a daughter, three little grandchildren and one that was born shortly after her death. She left me, and six siblings that adored her.
