Lovely Night

The dark storm clouds rolled in off the gulf with the promise of rain. Madeleine & Katie immediately became filled with dread. After 3 years of living on the gulf, the girls still did not like thunderstorms.

Being born and spending their early years in the dry climate of west Texas sealed their fear of long-lasting, rain-filled thunderstorms.

Giving in to their cries of fear, we let the girls climb into bed with us to watch our favorite laugh inducing family TV program, America's Funniest Videos. With a backdrop of thunder and lightening, we laughed until we cried.

What a wonderful feeling to hear my daughters filled with honest laughter among the loving hugs and kisses as the 4 of us lay in bed snuggling.

These are the memories I will cherish the rest of my days.
