We had a great thunderstorm tonight…


and because I love thunderstorms, I am using my position as mom to foster this love in my children.  So, tonight, the rain was coming straight down, and I could open the windows and doors without getting everything all wet.  My favorite kind of thunderstorm. 

I opened all the blinds, turned off all the lights, and Broder and Sunny and I sat down on the couch to watch the show.  We have lots of windows in the living room, so this works out well. 

It was a long thunderstorm, and after a while, the kidlets stopped their chatter and just sat. 

When it was all over, I got up, found my camera, and captured the picture below.



About Sandie

A little background: A mother of 3, two boys and a girl. Married young to a good man. No longer young, but he is still a good man. Grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, lived several years in small town Alaska, spent a couple years in the city of Madison, currently residing not too far from down town Anchorage. Drink a crazy amount of coffee. Fiercely loyal to my friends. Truly rabid in my defense of family. Beyond thankful that my God loves me enough to allow me to doubt and question.
