Todays thankful list from the end of May starts with:

 #2239. The sound of rain through the night.  

How I would love to hear the sound of rain right now.  The ground is hard like cement, dry, cracked and dusty.  We'd need some of those soft, gentle, all rain kind of days for it to penetrate deep into the ground.  Tonight they're calling for 5 -10 mm so hopefully we'll get it, every little bit helps. 

It's been super hot and humid here, though we were away for two of those weeks and I'm thankful for that.  I'm not so great with humidity.  We sold our pool this year because it just wasn't getting much use and of course this summer it's hot and dry, perfect for jumping into that pool to refresh ourselves, but the shower will have to do from now on :-(

Life has been pretty full here lately.  June flew by as we were away for more than half of it.  Our little granddaughter Lily is already two months old, we haven't seen her in over a month, thank goodness for video Skype.  We'll see her soon though and I can't wait.  It's amazing how much they change in such short amounts of time.  She's smiling now and sleeps through the night.  Her parents surely are blessed to be given that comfort.
