At the end of a stormy day, I’m thankful for lots of things. Here’s my top ten of the day:
1. for shelter. warm, dry, snug shelter. 2. for the intensity of thunder. 3. for leaves dancing and spiraling in the wind. 4. for the rare and welcome afternoon nap. 5. for tin roofs. 6. for the odd yellowish-green light that filled the sky this evening. 7. that floods recede. 8. for the sound of the babbling branch drifting in the open windows and doors. 9. that the lightning bugs made it through the deluge. 10. for dusk, my favorite time of day.
