Mid Summer Thunder
As I sit here on my back porch watching and listening to the storms that are rolling thru our area, I observe the wonders of nature all around me and her ominous force.
There is something calming and relaxing about a summer storm, not a violent one, but just a steady down pour of refreshing rain that has a tendency to nurture the soul and calm the spirit.
I notice a humming bird searching my potted flowers for nectar. The clouds are rolling in and thunder fills the air. Since I first planted a variety of flowering specimens and nourished them, they have all blossomed into marvelous splashes of color that surround me in my "little world." A sense of accomplishment and peace enters my soul as I sit here listening to the rain drenching the landscape.
I am relaxed and at this point in my life, for the moment, everything is right. I do not know what the next hour, day, week, month or year will bring, BUT for now.....I savor this moment in time....I know as I age that life is fleeting, and these mid summer days of thunder and beauty are to be cherished.
