    I am grateful for all the rain we have been getting, it's making the grass green and keeping the temperatures down.

    I had a great day and reflected on it. I am so lucky to have my parents. My father and I prepped my kitchen for my new appliances coming tomorrow. We moved my old fridge to the basement... Its nice having muscles! :) my mom tore my old wallpaper down, just BC. My dad fixed NY lawnmower too. In the end, they found and bought me a bench for my front porch. Just BC they knew I was looking and wanted to help. I don't know how I got so blessed!

    Then I started thinking...I have everything I have BC of them. Not for what they physically gave me, but for the values they instilled in me. I am independent, take care of myself and bills (which wasn't always the case but I'm divorced and had no choice ), own a home, have an amazing education and career at 36, learned to enjoy the long-term goals rather than short term pleasures.... Etc. I could go on and on. Anyway, thought this was a great place to purge my gratefulness :)

    Thanks for listening...or reading....lol

    We survived! There were horrible storms in Texas over the weekend. Yesterday there were tornadoes around us and my husband stayed with me at our cabin in central Texas until things calmed down. Then he drove to our house in Houston and apparently caught up with the storm and drove in it all the way home. This morning, Houston is having major flooding and his office is opening at noon today, to allow everyone to stay off the road until the flood waters have a chance to recede. We have been in a drought for several years, many of our lakes were low, and now everything is full again! Yes, there was lots of damage done, but this is just about the good parts.
