Storms ~ Just for Fun JUNE

Starting the day again with Kim’s challenge about Happiness. There were lots of thunderstorms all around my home all night last night. Lightning is not my favorite part of the weather. The photo is what I saw at sunset yesterday. The storms were brewing. I enjoy the rain but not the storms. However this morning I could tell the garden and the birds enjoyed the rain that saturated my yard. 

A lot of people are going through these storms, not just from the rain. But internal storms. My heart goes out to anyone who can relate. The world is not as personable as it should be. If you are having problems, not sure who to talk to, feel free to message me. I don’t have any magical answers but I can listen. I will try to help anyone in the darkness. I know there is a stigma in this crazy world about asking for help. You instantly become labeled. It makes me so angry. There is nothing to be ashamed of if you need help. If the truth be told, those who are talking the loudest about the ones asking for help, probably need more help than any of us. My point is to anyone reading this, if you need help, please do not be afraid or ashamed to ask. Your life may depend on it. Make the right decision. You are not alone.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

  1. Carol, I love lightning storms so much that I have gotten into the car and tried to follow them. I have flown to areas rich in monsoons on the chance of being in a big thunderstorm. But one very dear friend has a health condition that makes her miserable in a storm. My heart goes out to her, and to all the people who are hurt in some way by storms. So it is a dichotomy. Like kittens. Someone with a severe cat allergy could suffer greatly being anywhere near an adorable little kitten. But others live for them.

  2. I just realized this post is suppose to be about Happiness, per Kim’s challenge. I would like to add that I get joy in helping others, which leads to happiness. If I see others in need, or that need to talk, I can listen, or share a few words about my journey. This, in turn brings joy and happiness into my life.
