I honestly can't remember the last time that I was this busy, but my mother always told me that "idle hands are the devil's playground." So staying busy is a good thing. I will probably quote that more times than you care to count, but it's always a good reminder that we should stay busy and use our time wisely.
Speaking of using my time wisely. Yesterday, June 9, 2012, marked the wettest day in June since 1930. Our little slice of paradise on the panhandle was under water. I saw the water coming up the back deck of my house, and soon my lake was in my back yard. It is a frightening thought that you may soon be sitting on the roof of your house, waiting on a boat to rescue you. Yes, many thoughts of Noah and the Ark went through my head, and countless words began to swarm, so i'm sure you will be seeing that reflected in my writing in the next week or so.
I realized yesterday how very quickly things can change. It only takes one second for your life to change completely. Live your life with this in mind. Be good to one another, always. Be thankful for everything good in your life, and be accepting of the bad, so you can learn from it.
Everyone is safe and sound, and now the clean up begins. The lake brought to my house all of the debris that floats in it, like logs, sticks, muck, and whatever trash people throw in it on the other side. Yet, everyone is safe, wet and ready to be productive and get the yard looking normal again.
I hope that you all have a magnificent week, that is safe, dry and productive.
