v2, d171: Rain-soaked Saturday Mornings

Amazing how "thirty percent chance of isolated showers" becomes "monsoon looming over one of the most flood-prone areas of the state."  Equally amazing how quickly "beach party with our church friends" can become "most disappointing day in a three-year-old life." 

Disappointingly un-amazing is how quickly "bad morning on the road" wipes out gratitude for a mountain of blessings that are obviously staring you in the face. 

Therefore, it is with a penitent and grateful heart that I give thanks publicly for family, for safety on rain-soaked highways, for a warm, dry home to come back to, and for an hour digging in the sandbox and playing in the rocks before going in for an evening work shift. 

Very blessed.
