Looking Forward to the Storm

June 7

When I was little and staying with my grandma in South Carolina one summer there was a thunderstorm.

My grandma made me turn off all of the lights and the television.  I could only be still.  She sat in her rocking chair on the porch and I stood beside her.  The storm was so much bigger than us but we survived together.

Now I love thunderstorms when I’m safely inside and the window is open a bit.  It reminds me of standing beside my grandma and being still.
