Friday, December 24
And it seems my dream will come true. Hooray! I ducked down to the store this morning to get fresh ingredients for breakfast tomorrow. It was lovely and grey with a nice breeze as I walked down. When I walked out...I was greeted with glorious, glorious rain.
Seriously guys. After a 14 year drought, this stuff is like liquid gold from the heavens. For years the newspapers would run stories of farmers wanting only rain for Christmas and it never came. Or it did in the form of a wicked electrical storm (love them!). I know we're now facing floods and a lot of the crops have been ruined. I suppose that's the cycle in nature though, right? Feast, famine. Drought, flood. Um, I think there's another pair in there somewhere.
Anyway, personally I will never get tired of rain. I'm thankful for it. Just as I am thankful for my family and friends (I mean you guys too). And not just at Christmas but all year round. I've never been happier with my lot in life and I truly wish the same for all of you.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays guys.
