Actually, I love a good storm. It clears the air and paints the world clean.
But I hate the storms with high winds and destruction knocking out power, and damaging property.
I didn’t make it all the way home last night because the wind gusts were too strong against my high sided RV.
After being pushed across into oncoming traffic with the strong wind gusts, it was time to reassess the situation. How fortunate to be able to pull over and park up safe, away from trees, nose into the wind.
Around 2am I was woken by Benji trying to burrow under my pillow. He’s never been afraid of thunder and lightning before! I wasn’t too impressed with the early wake up call at 2am.
Yet how can I judge my faithful little companion who comes and presses into me when I’m sad.
This isn’t on the grand scale of Mother Teresa’s love, but a good reminder not to judge, instead to fill our hearts with compassion, comfort and understanding for scared little dogs and frightened or sad people.
“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” – Mother Teresa
Have a truly awesome day, especially if you have work to do repairing damage or waiting for power to be restored – just breath and count your blessings.
