Woke to the rain today. Nice to lay in bed listening to it hit the glass of the skylights. Always makes me feel good.
Was surprised to see the city has taken down the trees in the sidewalk I called about. They had bee dying for a long time and the prospect of saving them passed long ago. Not sure if they will replace them but at least they will not fall on someone.
Don't know what to think about the crazy person that shot all those people in Colorado. No idea what goes through a mind like that. Prayers and thoughts to all the families. Just not right.
Had a good day yesterday. Not a lot of business but some. Nice people came in and had a few laughs. Word seems to be getting around more and more. I am so lucky.
Was thinking about my son this morning. How his mother I don't think has ever believed he was abused by her nephew. How she warned her brother that the police where on the way to interview the offender. How she kept going to all the family holidays with the offender making it impossible for my son to be part of her family. How she now lives in the same house as the offender...........I thought I had a crappy mom........I wish I could make this different for him. He will be ok. It will hurt from time to time for him but he has made a good life and he knows I love him.
I hope it rains all day today. We need it so badly. It would be nice for the plants and the temperature to have a break like that. I like rainy days anyways. I used to try not to get wet like everyone. One day I was running to the car and I thought.......what am I going to melt?.
Things I am thankful for:
