It has been raining for so long. I hardly remember what a spring felt like and now it is summer and almost the end of June. I live in a town of about 20,000 people and the town is surrounded by many farms. Farms that are struggling because of all the rain. Struggling because their fields are floods to wet to plant or planted but under water.

I know this was a strange way to start, but the last few days have been giving me a lot to think about. Like a lot of people I have got water coming into my house every time it rains. I feel lucky I don't have to move. I complain about being overweight, having arthritis. I complain because I am disabled. I have come to realise that I have more than some. I might be disabled but I am healthy. I have my kids and grandkids. I might feel lonely and feel lost but not abandoned. I have spark friends.

So where the rain falls, tears will no longer fall.

    Deb I am so proud of your positive attitude and how far you have come.

    That's right look up to the Lord and be thankful for all the blessings in your life and remember that someone else is fighting a battle worse than yours.

    We are all blessed but sometimes just have to take a closer look in the mirror.

    You are AWESOME !!!

    ps ....... I'll be sending prayers out for the farmers.

    I'm sorry about the never ending torrential rains. It's been really wet here too. Seems like the gods are crying there's just so much of it.

    But I'm glad that you know that you are not alone. emoticon

    i hear what you are saying, i didnt think it was ever ever going to get summer here, we had rain again today too.
    and the forecast is calling for rain all week.
    i dont know too much about cold fronts or warm fronts or whatever patterns we have that causes it, but summer will bring with it the hurricane season and here in east ky we get alot of the rain from those storms when they move up the coast.
    i know rain is good, but not when it gets to the point of causing crop problems and mold and mildew, etc.
    like you said, we can just be thankful that we arent in a drought i guess.
