Rain, rain...

Mmmmm....I love the season changes. I know, we are still in for quite a bit more summer. But I love teaser days like today - hard rain complete with actual thunder and lightening. Do you know what I love more than days like today? Days like today when my husband is here and I take advantage of working from home. Yup, there's something special about being in your own home on days like this, with your partner sitting just a few feet away from you...hearing the rain pick up outside and gazing out the window to see sheets of water and flashes of light, knowing that Mother Earth is finally getting her long needed rehydration and our family of trees is finally getting the dusty dryness washed from their parched leaves. And being able to take a break from emails and phone calls to sit with my husband. I would work from home every day that he is here if I could. I'm happier and he's happier and WE are happier. 

I can't believe how crazy busy our lives are these days. We are making Christmas plans already. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad to get them made, but I can't believe this year has gone so fast. We seem to be living so far in the future sometimes that we forget about today - we don't take advantage of right now. But today I did. I sat right here at my little computer - still connected to the world - but soaking up the goodness of what today brought. 

Hope you all had a little peace in your day today, too.
