Writing Prompt #56: “52 Weeks of Gratitude Challenge” (Week 18)

Week #18: The Weather.

I’m grateful for the weather where I live. Yes, it’s hot and humid during the summer (and usually before and after summer, too, like this past weekend). But, I’m appreciative of the mostly sunny days, cool breezes, and hearing the crickets at night.

There are things about the weather that scare me – Hurricanes, the threat of tornadoes, and sometimes violent thunderstorms. But, at the same time, I’m grateful that I don’t live in a flood zone. The rain helps the flora grow and gives water to the animals. We have good weather forecasting that helps us prepare, as much in advance as possible.

I’m also grateful that everything is fully in bloom now, and the pollen count has dropped! Seeing the green leaves, beautiful flowers, and fresh grass makes me think of springs and summers past, and also think about the future.

Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
