This blog is a digital blessing bowl, a place to record the small blessings that are often missed or forgotten but which make life holy. Feel free to add your own blessings to my blessing bowl. Or perhaps you'll be encouraged to start your own.

Shelter from the storm

It stormed last night - heavy rain, hail, thunder, lightening, and wind.  Inside the snug house we watched a movie that made us laugh (Multiplicity), sheltered and comforted by each other.
This morning the birds are singing, there is a promise of sunshine, and we await the arrival of children and grandchildren who will bring more cheer and laughter, helping us move through these early days of grief.  They will remind us of the promise of new life, as my niece comes bearing a child whose due date is my father's birthday.

While you were riding out the storm with an entertaining movie, I was losing sleep because the dog barked, moaned and scratched with every flash of lightning and roar of thunder. There's more than four inches in the rain gauge, and Canal Drive is impassable. The rain is still falling here.
