We hope you’re having a happy Thorsday, little friday and Thankful Thursday. Here in the woods, we’re worrying about things we can’t control. We have friends who have been evacuated in Colorado, and as the fur-girls mentioned, if you are on Facebook, please consider sharing or liking the found/missing pet notices. You just never know who will see what. If you aren’t our friends there, let’s fix that! I have a great resource who is sharing such photos and other information from the area.
And because that’s how the weather rolls, we have a threat for serious storms later today. I wish we could just send our extra rain where it is needed. Our ground is saturated and the last thing we need is more wind OR rain. (Ironically, downed trees in the woods quickly become a fire threat and are the fuel feeding that wild fire out west.)
I *am* thankful that my friend who had to evacuate and her pets – horses included – are safe. I am thankful for Facebook and the technology that keeps us connected. I am thankful that we have multiple early warning systems in place so that IF the worst weather happens here, we can attempt to take cover.
Sorry this isn’t a very cheerful post. I gave up worrying years ago, but I am wired to help, and when I can’t physically insert myself into the situation, I am a hot mess. A distracted, hot mess, who is also grateful that God hears the prayers from my heart, and not my baby tuckoo and the moo-cow brain.
What’s on your heart today?
