I've talked before about the irony of life and today I have a story for you.
After spending the morning at the dentist, filling shirt orders, and adding more pics to the website, I decided to go home for the afternoon to do some things I could do from home. I figured I would get out and run errands later in the day. I also had a clean car. I love having a clean car. It makes for a very happy Cade.
I have a math problem for you:
Clean Car+Lots of Errands to run= summertime storm
Oh yes, as soon as I got ready to walk out the door I saw the lightening and heard the thunder. I should have known because that is life for you. And then about the time I got ready to get out of the car it started pouring. Naturally. It was the type of rain storm that no matter what you did you were going to get wet. The umbrella couldn't save you, walking through ankle deep water kind of rain.
Now for those of you who aren't familiar with rain in the South you should know one thing. We, as loyal southerns, do not complain about rain in the summer. Rain is like snow on Christmas. It doesn't come that often, but when it does you praise God. Around here we have more farms than people. Rain is essential to life on the Grand Prairie. The farmers need it just like a kid needs snow on Christmas morning. As I swam through town today trying to avoid being struck down my lightening, I had no choice but to be thankful. I was thankful because that is what you do in the South on a hot summer day. Many people I know depend on rain. My town depends on rain. Therefore, I can assure you the whole town was thankful today. Pretty cool, huh? Rain in the South on a hot summer day is something we are ALL thankful for and that made soaking socks and a broken umbrella a little easier to deal with. Until the next summer shower comes... Stay thankful!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way.

I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
