I am still in the middle of a jury trial. Today we are finishing up with closing arguments. That’s why I’ve been sporadic in my blogging. However, I thought I would just quickly post a story that seems to have been told at many sources. I saw it in a book of stories by Jim Purdue.
It made me smile because it’s a reminder to see positive… even in the storms.
A little girl walked daily to and from her school. On this particular morning, the weather (much like our recent weather) looked rainy with more clouds forming, As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with thunder and lightning.
The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school. And, she was also afraid that the electrical storm might harm her child.
Following a particularly loud roar of thunder and then lightning, the mother quickly got into her car and drove along the route to her daughter’s school.
Soon, she saw her little girl walking along. She noticed that at each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up, and smile. Another flash of lightning would crack through the air and her little girl would again stop, look up, and smile.
Finally, the mother called over to her and asked, “What are you doing?”
The girl answered, smiling, “God just keeps taking pictures of me.”
And for our pic o’day, this just made me smile. Have a great weekend!
