Father’s Day Disasters

While other families were pampering dad’s all across the country. Our family was busy cleaning, rearranging and running around like crazy. In the middle of it all we discovered serious plumbing issues in the basement. The three kids did great helping with no complaints, and poor Jason who should have been relaxing did so much. He even grilled, and while I was getting dressed for work he made MY plate and brought it to me. Oh, that was so backwards, and so sweet. Our day was crazy, but for one of my closest friends, her day was tragic. Her father passed away. We all knew it was coming, but no matter how prepared you think you are….it hits hard. It made me appreciate the craziness around me. We all might be totally stressed out, but we still have each other.

 

 

“Spirit Of A Storm”

There’s a spirit of a storm in my soul
A restlessness that I can’t seem to tame
Thunder and lightning follow everywhere I go
There’s a spirit of a storm in my soul.

There’s a hurricane that’s raging through my blood
I can’t find a way to calm the sea
Maybe I’ll find someday the waters aren’t so rushed
Right now they’ve got the best of me
And oh, it’s been a long, long time
Since I had real peace of mind
So I’m just going to sit right here
In this old chair till this storm rolls by.

Oh, maybe it’s just the way I am
Maybe I won’t ever change
So I’m just going to sit right here
In this old chair and just soak up the rain.

There’s a spirit of a storm in my soul
Every time I think it’s gone away
Dark clouds gather, that old wind begins to blow
The sun’s going to shine someday I hope
There’s a spirit of a storm in my soul, in my soul.
