Benecia, CA

It was a typical California afternoon... bright without a cloud in the sky, a light breeze blowing so the heat wasn't that bothersome. Jodi and Mikey were at work, the two Grandmothers were out someplace spoiling the youngest Grandkid, and the Teen Grandkid was holed up in her room oblivious to the world. So I went out for a drive and got thoroughly lost wandering around the California hills. Thank goodness for GPS's.

Pause and Look

If you pause and look, you can see a storm building, watch its formation and marvel at its majesty. Feel the storm's strength and appreciate what it could mean. Then it doesn't make any difference if it hits head on or passes by, you know it and can deal with it, taking your strength from the storm's strength.
